The Continuing Evolution of Library High Technology Collaborative Spaces: Infocommons, Digital Scholarship Centers, Makerspaces, and More

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

High technology collaborative spaces in academic libraries have evolved in a variety of interesting ways over the past two decades. In this session, we will explore developments in facilities termed information or learning commons, digital scholarship centers, makerspaces, media studios, and others. We will review the results of a recent survey on information commons and an associated trends monograph under development. We will explore variations in implementation of newly configured and technology-enabled library spaces, and present our views of the successes and perceived missed opportunities of such facilities as they have developed over the past two decades. The presenters will invite observations from the audience regarding these trends.
