Save the Date! ACRL/NY Annual Symposium ­ “The Library as Knowledge Laboratory” ­ December 6, 2013

When: Friday, December 6, 2013

Title: “The Library as Knowledge Laboratory”

Makerspaces, mashups and big data are bringing radical change to higher education. Academic libraries are meeting the challenge of this new landscape with a culture of participation, innovation and collaboration. As librarians’ roles shift from a traditional service-and-support model to that of active project participant in support of digital scholarship, a new ethos of experimentation, learning, disruption, and creativity is evolving.

At ACRL/NY’s 2013 annual symposium we will explore the opportunities and challenges facing academic librarians in light of scholars’ increased demands for new formats, open-source tools, digital repositories, and innovative research methods in the new knowledge laboratory.

Where: 

The William and Anita Newman Vertical Campus Conference Center,
Baruch College, CUNY
55 Lexington Avenue (at 24th Street) Room 14-220 (14th floor)
New York, NY
