E101 - Toward the Design of Contemporary Library Spaces

10:30 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
David Jakes, Founder and Chief Design Officer, David Jakes Designs LLC

As the intellectual heart of a school, how the library supports student learning is simply mission-critical. With this as a grounding construct, we explore the changing nature of what a library is, what it means for learning, and how this translates into the effective design of library spaces. We consider the library as a spatial ecology, giving attendees the opportunity to consider how a physical and digital library can work together to provide an always-on, connective experience that will resonate with today’s students. Finally, our exploration of “library” presents the design process as a methodology that librarians can use to continually align and evolve the programs and spaces of the library to create meaningful capacities for student learners. Join in for an enriching conversation about the intersection of library, space, and design!
