Fusion Libraries: New Models for New Times
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
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. This panel discussion of academic and public libraries will illustrate planning strategies and the operational considerations that shaped them. Following the panel, Sandbox sessions will provide opportunities for in‐depth discussions with Fusion Library representatives.
