Spacing Out with the Library: An Exploration of Collaboration Across the Physical, Virtual and those Places in Between
Friday, May 8, 2015 @ College of Holy Cross, Worcester, MA
As the academic library evolves, it is wherever students and faculty are conducting research and learning, and within physical and virtual spaces intentionally designed to encourage scholarship, collaboration and production. Librarians and our colleagues across our campuses and beyond are actively engaged in building and assessing the most useful discovery services, the most valuable collections, the most cost-effective learning resources, the most effective collaborative spaces … for the best education and research. What does it take to expand “the library” beyond its traditional physical space? With whom are we working to expand our services?
Keynote speakers for 2015 are Marie S.A. Sorensen, AIA NCARB LEED AP, Architect and Principal-in-Charge of Sorensen Partners | Architects + Planners, Inc., and David Weinberger, Senior Researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society.
