Libraries in Shaping the Future of Higher Education

Part Three: Libraries as Place in Institutional Transformation

In what ways will libraries continue to be the intellectual hubs where users interact with ideas in both physical and virtual environments to expand learning and facilitate the creation of new knowledge?
Abstract: In what ways will libraries continue to be the intellectual hubs where users interact with ideas in both physical and virtual environments to expand learning and facilitate the creation of new knowledge? The pandemic has illustrated the power of place and the need for the post-pandemic campus to integrate academic activities for lifelong learning and research.

This conversation will explore the place of the library to convene people for impactful connections, and the new emerging and transformational role of libraries as learning commons that shape the overall campus as a network for collaboration.

Libraries in Shaping the Future of Higher Education

Part Two: Library Support for Equitable Access to Knowledge

In a climate of anti-intellectualism, institutions of higher education remain committed to making knowledge accessible and translating research to help solve society’s pressing challenges. Libraries have long served as stewards of research publications and creative academic output, facilitating access. How are they serving both as advisors to help scholars and students be more productive in accessing and utilizing scholarship throughout the research cycle, and as institutional partners to ensure their university’s research output is globally findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable towards the aim of greater open access, and impact?

The transformation of CCP's library will aid a diverse student body with learning, tutoring, research, and social spaces—learn from this project and discover methods to help your students achieve educational success.
Abstract: The needs of inner-city community college students are widely varied. Community College of Philadelphia's (CCP) primary function is to provide them with tools and assistance to help them succeed, which is also the purpose of its newly-renovated library. Today's library is no longer just a book repository, but also an important communal hub for students. The transformation of CCP's library will aid a diverse student body with learning, tutoring, research, and social spaces. We'll share new ways for your institution's library to address these student needs and provide them with the best educational and social resources.

Designing Libraries for Their New Roles

This session will use recent library projects to study the effect of major program shifts on student behavior and discourse.
Abstract: Designing libraries based on student experience rather than book storage provides the potential to cater to a wider variety of students and learning styles, transforming libraries from an afterthought for prospective students to an asset for recruitment. This session will use recent library projects to study the effect of major program shifts on student behavior and discourse. We will look at both larger capital improvement projects and “small wins” that can be readily executed.

The Library as Learning Commons

Even in the digital age, the library plays a fundamental role in campus life and learning, particularly when it’s updated to meet the needs of 21st-century students and pedagogies.

From Volume 46 Number 3 | April–June 2018

Abstract: Following decades of decline in perceived status and value, the university library has found new life as a center of the knowledge economy, of collaborative learning, and of creative production. The challenge of updating the library mission for the digital age is further complicated when that library resides within a 1960s Brutalist concrete structure. The revitalization of the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons at the Wentworth Institute of Technology illustrates the process of transforming a foreboding, bunker-like space into a modern, vibrant campus destination.
