These slides were presented at the CLIC: Cooperating Libraries in Consortium event on April 12, 2016 at Hamline University's Anderson Center in Minnesota.
Abstract of Talk:
Miller discusses the ways in which our beliefs about learning and research — and the role librarians can play in those processes — are symbolized in the ways we choose to plan and design library spaces. Drawing on her experiences at UVA, UCLA and the University of Miami, she will share examples of library space planning and renewal that are creating new opportunities for librarians to engage in new ways with faculty and students. In particular, she will offer practical tips on how library space can embody key concepts in the new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework) and spur growth and transformation of library reference and instructional services. By teaching intentionally through space design, libraries — and librarians — can increase the significance of their roles in the learning and research processes at their colleges and universities.
