CHICAGO - Alexander Cohen, librarian and space planner and Loriene Roy, professor, University of Texas at Austin, will reprise their program from the 2011 Annual Conference in New Orleans as a live webinar from 1:30 - 3 p.m. CDT Wednesday, July 20.
In a program titled, "Learning Spaces: Cost-effective innovation," Cohen and Roy will discuss that in order to develop library learning space with limited resources, it is essential to understand the basic facility requirements for collections, staff, users, programs, meetings and social spaces. The webinar will addresses the changes that have to take place so that the library building can provide dynamic learning spaces. Emphasis will be placed upon recycling existing facilities and developing new services, as well as methods to develop welcoming learning environments that patrons will want to visit and use.
