Conference: The effect of new technologies on library design: building the 21st century library

10 -11 August 2011

Atlanta, Georgia, USA | Emory University


Technology provides a tool for the delivery of library service. Technology also shapes and limits how service can be delivered. The effective library building supports changing service patterns, changing modes of service delivery, and changing technological applications.

The IFLA Standing Committee on Library Buildings and Equipment, with the support of the IT Standing Committee, offers this satellite meeting in advance of the 2011 IFLA World Library and Information Congress to explore the ways technology impacts library service today, and, more specifically, how our buildings have responded to those changes in recent projects and how our buildings will have to designed to respond to future changes.
