Library Technology and the Future of Libraries

LACUNY Institute 2012

June 1, 2012

9:30 – 4:00

CUNY Graduate Center, Ninth Floor Conference Suite

 

The goal of the 2012 Institute is to explore the ways technology has transformed how users discover, access, and ultimately use information in academic libraries. Changes in library technology mean not only a re-imagining of traditional objects such as a book or a journal, but also involves configuring a library’s physical space and how that space can be best used to serve one’s user community.

 

Keynote Speakers:

Jeffrey Hoover is an architect with Boston-based Tappe Associates. Mr. Hoover specializes in programming, planning and design of learning environments, with particular focus on libraries, as well as master plans and feasibility studies for colleges and universities. He is interested in designing library spaces that inspire and foster collaborative learning environments and incorporate emerging technologies.

2012 LACUNY Institute

We are pleased to announce that the CUNY Graduate Center will host the LACUNY Institute 2012. The conference will be held Friday, June 1, 2012. It will take place on the Ninth Floor Conference Suite.

The goal of the 2012 Institute is to explore the ways technology has transformed how users discover, access, and ultimately use information in academic libraries. Changes in library technology mean not only a re-imagining of traditional objects such as a book or a journal, but also involves configuring a library’s physical space and how that space can be best used to serve one’s user community. Finally, librarians are being challenged to find more effective ways to “organize, store and distribute information.”

 

All questions and comments should be sent to LACUNY President Dália Leonardo at dleonardo@gc.cuny.edu
