By incorporating new and more diverse collaborations and programs, libraries are blurring boundaries between information, culture and daily life. “Fusion” library facilities, functioning as community and academic hubs, have demanded new planning parameters to address identity, integration, and territory.
This panel discussion will illustrate planning strategies and the operational considerations that shaped them.
The session is sponsored by LLAMA (Library Leadership & Management Association).
