From academic library to academic commons

7 January 2011

Mid-Winter Symposium, Association for Library Collections and Technical Services, San Diego, CA

Robert Kieft, College Librarian, Occidental College

Occidental’s Robert Kieft talks about the transforma- tion of the College’s library into an academic commons, creating a teaching- and learning-centered environment focused on electronic resources and modes of scholarship; housing academic services in support of student and faculty work; and employing staff who largely do not rely on “traditional” models of library and IT organization.
