Libraries, Education and Community in the Digital Age
The new information age has had a dramatic impact on the libraries in schools, higher education and in our communities. With the rise of digital communication, including e-books and online journals, physical books are a much smaller component of libraries. Some existing libraries have chosen to reconfigure a portion of the space devoted to book stacks by adapting their programmatic areas to include community meeting spaces, collaborative study areas for students and cafes. In the higher education realm, libraries and student centers can be combined into one building offering long-term cost savings. And in the greater New York Metro area, libraries are also being used as workspaces.
Our panel of experts will explore the rising trends and the changing role of libraries including their use as campus and community centers which can generate profits while still meeting the changing educational needs of their end users.
