This is part three of a three-part webinar series delivered in partnership between SCUP, AASCU (American Association of State Colleges and Universities), and ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries). In these conversations, higher education administrators, planners, designers, and library stakeholders discuss the challenges to higher education in a changing world and how more deeply to engage libraries to enable institutional achievement. View the recordings for part one, “Libraries’ Leadership in Transforming Student Success”, and part two, “Library Support for Equitable Access to Knowledge”.

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.
