Creating Library Learning Ecologies
S.R. Ranaganathan's fifth law of library science offers a compelling challenge to all librarians: "The Library is a Growing Organism." This session will explore how librarians have encouraged the growth of natural connections by collaborating to teach, manage collections, and design spaces. Variously working with first nations communities, studio art faculty, students, or science librarians, each presentation will deal with a unique collaboration that connected library services to a larger ecosystem.
