Join UNYSLA for lively presentations and a panel discussion on academic, public, and special library spaces!

Key note speaker and Vice Provost and Neilly Dean of the River Campus Libraries at the University of Rochester Mary Ann Mavrinac will share her vision for an innovation hub in the library. We will also tour the VISTA Collaboratory. Our speakers include Ken Bolton, Research Librarian at Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration, who will talk about how the Marriott Student Learning Center (a social learning space that replaced book stacks and a reference desk) has impacted library services; Wendy Quinn-Decatur, Associate Librarian at Albany Molecular Research, Inc., who will give us an overview and look towards the future for the library space and collection at AMRI; and Peter Wehner, Associate and Senior Architect at Passero Associates, who will talk about the decision-making process and design plans for the new Irondequoit Public Library.

Registration and detailed schedule will be available soon. We hope to see you there!
