Saturday, June 23 - 10:00am

10:30am - 12:00pm
Emerging Library Space Program Hilton Anaheim
Pacific B
Description :

The role of the library to serve as cultural hub continues to transform and expand the functional relationships of physical + virtual spaces. Increasingly, access to the library anywhere, anytime, on a computer or a mobile device is a dynamic event, requiring a vibrant space. The rise of the mixed use library generates a new set of considerations for programming, planning and operations.

How do you apply planning metrics for library space? What metrics work for long and short term planning? What areas need to change in response to these new models? How should libraries adapt their facilities to address considerations of identity, integration, and territory?

This program will consist of a moderated panel / discussion with 4 emerging library professionals: 2 public and 2 academic. This will be followed by a summary of planning principles. Participants are invited to submit, in advance or at the session, library facility projects under consideration by their communities/ institutions so that a comprehensive list of hybrids can be captured for use in future exploration of this topic.

10:30am - 12:00pm
Fusion Libraries: New Models for New Times Program Hilton Anaheim
California B
Description :

By incorporating new and more diverse collaborations and programs, libraries are blurring boundaries between information, culture and daily life. “Fusion” library facilities, functioning as community and academic hubs, have demanded new planning parameters to address identity, integration, and territory.

Following the panel, Sandbox sessions will provide opportunities for in‐depth discussions with Fusion Library representatives.

Library Service Planning: Leveraging Your Organization to Transform Your Library Program Anaheim Convention Center
303AB
Description :

Uncertain environments call for experimentation. Learn how to develop a framework that leverages library resources in a new way. Address the conditions to attract new customers and resources. Archimedes moved a rock with a small stone. So can you.

Obviously, not all budgets are in decline. But it can be catastrophic if you don’t know the functional service capacities for your library. Researchers say that what people think of as intuition is, at its heart highly developed pattern recognition. This program will help new leaders understand patterns - putting intelligent minds to leverage change.

The Library: Moving Beyond Community Living Room Program Hilton Anaheim
Palos Verdes
