Beams & Bytes: Constructing the Future Library -- Architectural and Digital

Friday, January 7, 2011 in San Diego, CA

8:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.


Changing user expectations and the relentless shift to the digital medium
are rapidly influencing library structures and services. Libraries are
evolving to create and deliver new services, modifying their collecting
patterns, and striving to meet new user demands.   This day-long symposium
will focus on the physical and digital infrastructure of libraries,
conceiving and creating services to meet user needs and expectations,
transforming collections and access, and how all of this will affect the
people who work in libraries.  Symposium attendees will have the opportunity
to participate in collaborative activities during the event.


Speakers and Topics are: 


Library Space: Dimensions of the Imagination. Michael Miller, Dean of
Library Services, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo,


Architectural Considerations for the 21st Century Library. Jeffrey M.
Hoover, Architect, Tappe Associates and  Denelle C. Wrightson, Director of
