I am truly delighted to announce that registration for Designing Libraries for the 21st Century VIII, hosted by Georgia Tech in Atlanta on October 6-8, 2019, is now open – see details below. We have an excellent line-up of speakers and topics for this conference, and a choice of pre-conferences: one includes tours of 3 Atlanta-area sites and the other uses a design workshop format to focus on making the case for a library space renovation.
The planning group of Tom Hickerson, U. Calgary, Catherine Murray-Rust and Ameet Doshi, Georgia Tech, Greg Raschke, NC State U., and myself, have worked hard to put together a program that we believe will highlight exemplars and trends in the field.
There is a cap on registration and the conference usually fills quickly, so I urge you to register soon if you would like to attend.
