This pictorial (a portfolio like annotated paper used in the design field) describes the six month deployment of PLACED prototypes in the DOKK1 library in Denmark. It presents the way in which the prototypes have been utilised in the library, taking into account a specific activity as well as the physical and informational space of the library. It examines the community-produced virtual collection that grew out of this library event with a focus on its placeness.
