Description: There is no greater resource on campus for research and scholarship than the library. In this session, we'll take a page from computer programmers and develop the library's public 'interface'. To begin the conversation, we will explore the places where our communities might interact with the library: for students, we'll look at the course management system; for campus administrators, we'll look at learning metrics and library use; for makers and doers, we'll consider the library's brick-and-mortar footprint. Come help fuel a conversation around de-silo'ing the library and envisioning it as a set of powerful tools for the community!
