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.
