The Libraries master planning efforts continue as our consulting groups, brightspot strategy and Engberg Anderson Architects, return to campus the week of March 27.

In addition to several workshops with library staff, a one hour workshop will be held on March 29 to bring together graduate students and faculty members to discuss the role libraries currently play in their research and teaching, and how that role could strengthen in the future.

Workshop objectives include:

~Uncovering the current role of the library in a graduate student’s/faculty member’s research and teaching: discussing when, how, and where patrons interact with the libraries.

~Identifying opportunities for the library to play a strong role in a graduate student’s/faculty member’s research and teaching: discussing when, how, and where patrons will interact with the libraries.

During a one hour workshop, brightspot strategy will engage faculty and graduate students through group discussions and activities. Faculty and graduate students invited to this workshop should represent the various disciplines covered by the libraries in scope, range from first-year to final-year students, and represent a range of experience at UW-Madison.

  • Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2017
  • Time: 4:00-5:00pm
  • Location: Room 2252 College Library (Media Studios)

As a reminder, the consultants have visits scheduled through the end of May.
