Designing for the Net Generation: Reinventing the Perry Castaneda Library
MetadataShow full item record
Millennials are dramatically changing the way that College and University Libraries are utilized. A shift from a focus on print media to digital collections and information literacy means that the library environment must respond to the needs and expectations of this diverse user group. Today’s students expect their libraries to provide innovative, flexible spaces, a variety of amenities, access to technology, and support for the use of their own personal devices. This type of wholesale transition can be challenging, forcing stakeholders to consider what is possible with limited budgets, time constraints associated with year round operations, and inherent difficulties of increasing access to power and technology in an “old” building. This session will cover how the Perry Castañeda Library is being transformed to provide new tools, spaces, and expertise to the entire campus community, and how other facilities can turn their libraries into environments for inspired learning.
