Our Library of the Future Symposium

For library and higher education practitioners seeking a deeper exchange with staff involved in planning of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, we offer a quarterly, day-and-a-half symposium, “Our Library of the Future.” This experience is designed for those planning renovation or building projects and includes in-depth tours of Hunt Library and the renovated spaces of the D.H. Hill Library, as well as sessions with library administrators and service providers. There is no charge to attend; however, registration is required.

In addition to tours of both the D. H. Hill Library and James B. Hunt Jr. Library, sessions may include:

  • architecture and furnishings
  • new technologies (large scale visualization spaces, a game lab, creativity studio, and makerspace)
  • logistics and service implications of an automated storage and retrieval system for collections (the bookBot)
  • service and staffing model planning that was required to open and operate the new library 
  • vision and cultural transformation to support innovation in building, renovation, and services

Upcoming Symposium

The next Symposium will be held Monday, October 10 - Tuesday, October 11, 2016. 

Please register through our online form.
