Event Building Holistic Library Assessment: Space + Collections = Effective Services

by Barbara Burd on Mon, Jun 2, 2014 at 02:27 pm

Building Holistic Library Assessment: Space + Collections = Effective Service

Building Holistic Library Assessment: Space + Collections = Effective Service

As libraries face the challenge of defining new spaces for students, assessment of collections, especially e-resources, plays a pivotal role in re-configuring spaces and establishing new services. LLAMA MAES and LLAMA BES are co-sponsoring a panel discussion to address assessment of collections, service, and space to create a holistic approach to library design. Panel participants are Laura Newton Miller, Collections, EResources and Serials Librarian at Carleton University, who will discuss appropriate methods to assess library collections, including transitioning from print to eresources; Alex Cohen from Alex Cohen Associates will discuss methods of space assessment to transform libraries into functional and efficient facilities; and, Danuta Nitecki, Dean of Libraries at Drexel University, will discuss how her library transitioned to a student-centered service model with a new learning terrace and personal librarian service. This exciting program will take place Saturday, June 28th from 1-2:30 in Caesar’s Palace Roman IV room.
