Janette Blackburn revisits the concept of “library as place” as part of the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s annual Library Leadership in a Digital Age program.

In discussing the challenges and opportunities that contemporary libraries face with the rise of digital collections and information management, she draws examples of the creation of ‘neighborhoods of learning’  at Johns Hopkins University’s Brody Learning Commons and spaces with complementary academic programs at Duke Link at Duke University.
