Evolving Uses for Library Space

Library as Place: Evolving uses for physical locations in light of the increasing availability of electronic resources 

Dates: January 14-15, 2013. 
Sponsored by: ALA ALCTS 

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone! 

Each day, sessions begin and end at: Eastern: 10am – 6pm 

Description: Formerly conceived as repositories of print collections, libraries of all sorts are now providing electronic access to a wide range of digital resources. The publishing industry is changing rapidly, making fewer print options available to store in library buildings. How will your organization or institution continue to provide value for customers using the library building? 

What changes are you making to physical spaces that make accessing resources easier for differently abled users? How are you determining when to reduce shelving for print collections? What alternative uses do you foresee for those former shelving spaces? 

Please join us for an exciting and informative e-forum on January 14 and 15, 2013, to discuss how libraries of all types are adjusting their physical locations in response to the changing information environment. This e-forum will provide participants an opportunity to talk about what their libraries are doing to adjust to thinking of the library as place with unlimited potential. Librarians and technical services staff from all types of libraries are invited to participate.
