  • Future FrontiersContinue laptop checkout serviceCheckout portable projection kitsContinue group & quiet zonesSearch for multiple-use public spaces

  • To Boldly Go Use of portable dividing walls?Size of on-site collection?Support/promote online chat? (chatty Ask-A-Librarian)Hours of operation?

    Thank you for choosing to attend our session today on Space, The Future Frontier. Im Jennifer and colleague here is Don. We want to point out that we are from the Colorado University that has NOT been in the news lately.

    In these times of shrinking operating funds, it is tempting to plan for a smaller physical library presence in lieu of an expanding virtual presence. However, While virtual libraries, 24-hour hotlines and computer access to books and collections add immeasurably to the services that we can provide to our users, we must not forget the value of the library as a gathering place for our users and the myriad roles fulfilled by the library as place. We would like to tell you about our space saga at Colorado State University. Main library building built in 1965. In those days, phone lines and electric outlets were the major consideration. Sheet flow not a flood. 450,000 volumes destroyed in 3 hours. Foothills, view of the Rocky Mountains.
