Creating Digital Interactive Experiences in Open Spaces

Moderator:
Mike Nutt, Director of Visualization Services, NCSU Libraries

Panelists:
Jane Alexander, Chief Information/Digital Officer, Cleveland Museum of Art
Michael Boyles, Manager, Advanced Visualization Lab, Indiana University

Large-scale and interactive displays are social technologies as much as they are visual technologies. What happens between the people in front of a screen may be as important as what's happening on the screen itself. This is especially so with interactive display technologies that are installed in open spaces or those near public thoroughfares. What kinds of benefits can be created for users from interacting with screens that are in the commons rather than in their hands or in a classroom? This session features expertise from outside the library world to explore the affordances of open spaces for interactive digital experiences.
11:15 AM – 12:30 PM

Conference Session #3

The Experiential Library: Using Programs, Workshops, and Happenings to Promote and Leverage New Spaces

Moderator:
Marian Fragola, Director of Program Planning and Outreach, NCSU Libraries

Panelists:
Lauren Di Monte, Data and Research Impact Librarian, University of Rochester
Jason Evans Groth, Learning Spaces and Services Digital Media Librarian, NCSU Libraries
Holly Menninger, Director of Public Science, College of Sciences, NC State University

"If you build it will they come?" Not necessarily. Developing, designing, and opening an innovative, technology-rich space is just the first step. Thoughtful, creative programming can serve to attract early adopters and eventually a community of practice. By fostering a welcoming, collaborative atmosphere that promotes research, teaching, and learning, targeted users can better understand the vision for a particular space and what benefits that vision holds for their work. In this session, librarians and a science communicator will discuss how programming, events, and workshops can unlock a new space's potential. From staff development to the challenges of executing a successful event, this panel will cover both the philosophical approaches and the nuts and bolts of programming.
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Lunch (no program)

1:30 PM – 2:30 PM

Conference Session #4

Designing for Accessibility and Inclusion - Summers

Designing for Accessibility and Inclusion - Spina & Wells & Panel

Moderator:
Sonoe Nakasone, Lead Librarian for Metadata Technologies, NCSU Libraries

Panelists:
Renee Wells, Director of the GLBT Center, NC State University
Ed Summers, Distinguished Technical Leader and Senior Manager of Accessibility, SAS Institute Inc.
Carli Spina, Head Librarian of Assessment and Outreach, Boston College Libraries

What are best practices for incorporating principles of usability, accessibility and inclusion into physical and digital spaces? What particular challenges do libraries face in creating spaces that are welcoming and accessible for all? How might libraries, as public spaces adopt such practices, and apply those practices to their own workforce? Renee Wells of NCSU’s GLBT Center will give a case study of the climate for LGBT students on NCSU’s campus and the greater landscape of inclusive and welcoming spaces on college campuses, Ed Summers of SAS will share principles for accessibility for visually-impaired patrons and the wider spectrum of users with disabilities or learning differences, and Carli Spina of Boston College Libraries will explore how universal design can provide guiding principles for the development of inclusive and user-friendly spaces.
2:30 PM – 3:30 PM

Conference Session #5

Engaging Students in Reimagined Spaces: Successful Peer Mentor Programs and Experiences

Moderator:
Tom Hickerson, Vice Provost for Libraries and Cultural Resources and University Librarian, University of Calgary

Panelists:
Renee Reaume, Director of Metadata Services, University of Calgary
Bryan Sinclair, Associate Dean, Georgia State University Library
Jessica Elam-Handloff, PhD Candidate in the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media Program, NCSU Libraries
Tim Mensa, Digital Media Advisor, NCSU Libraries

Student peer mentor programs have been highly successful models within technology-rich, newly created, or reimagined spaces. This session will explore how student engagement enhances the success of these spaces and how a student’s experience of working in the space as a mentor enhances his/her own success. Panelists will address these questions and share their experiences. The panel members are Renee Reaume at the University of Calgary’s Digital Media Commons Student Mentor Program; Bryan Sinclair from the Student Innovation Fellows Program at Georgia State University Library’s CURVE; and two NCSU Libraries student mentors, Jessica Elam-Handloff and Tim Mensa.

Conference Session #6

Re-imagining Libraries: Two Models from Massachusetts

Moderator:
Patrick Deaton, Associate Director for Learning Spaces and Capital Management, NCSU Libraries

Panelists:
Maryellen Fitzgibbon, Senior Planner, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University
Cliff Gayley, Principal, William Rawn Associates, Architects, Inc.
Anu Vedantham, Director of Learning and Teaching Services, FAS Libraries, Harvard University

Libraries are undergoing an exciting period of reinvention and experimentation in new as well as renovated buildings. Two recent libraries from the Boston area, one academic and one public, re-imagine libraries as active and welcoming places seamlessly connected to their learning communities – with spaces to collaborate, socialize as well as study, eat, convene, converse and create. Both projects have created memorable places where people want to be: the Pritzker Commons transforming the Cabot Science Library in Harvard University’s Science Center, the Boston Public Library’s Central Branch creating a new vision of public space in the lower four floors of the Johnson Building. The session will explore ways that both libraries have pushed the boundaries of what libraries can be, exploring: new ways of learning through technology-rich environments; transparency and porosity opening libraries to outdoor spaces and pathways; the use of cafes at the front door (a strong statement of welcome, upending outdated rules about food and noise); flexible and reconfigurable spaces full of color; new spatial typologies that reflect how we learn and socialize today. The session will also explore challenges and opportunities in achieving transformation within existing and specifically mid-century modern buildings.
