Reinventing the Library: Meeting Campus Needs in the 21st Century

Posted by Heather on November 15, 2012

Reinventing the Library - library of the past, and library of the futureDo you love hearing speculation about what the world of tomorrow will look like? Are you curious about how the 21st century campus will take shape?

The Cunningham Memorial Library is, too.

The Task Force

The Library is positioning ourselves to meet the research and teaching needs of the 21st century campus. A task force made up of faculty, staff, and students from across campus has been established to work with two outside consultants on a project called Reinventing the Library: Meeting Campus Needs in the 21st Century.

During the next few months, campus is encouraged to learn about both the challenges and the opportunities that face academic libraries today.

When: November 28, 12:00 noon-1:30 p.m. OR 3:00-4:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.**
