Eee top in bookshelf

My first attempt at putting digital information out into the physical library. Many students go straight to the shelves when they want information. By putting a touchscreen where the books are I hope that they might discover all that is available in digital format as well. The screen shows an article on the subject that is on this shelf, the Falklands war of 1982. I have set up a netvibes page with preconfigured searches in RSS and some useful pages on the subject. By touching the screen the students can access articles and webpages directly.

There is a printer at the end of the bookshelf so they can print out anything interesting they find.
