Beams & Bytes: Constructing the Future Library -- Architectural 
and Digital Considerations

Changing user expectations and the relentless shift to the 
digital medium are rapidly influencing library structures and 
services. No longer just a reference and  circulation desk or a 
static repository for books and journals, the 21st Century 
library is evolving to  accommodate new services, collecting 
patterns, and user demands. Both presentations and participative 
activities will focus on the physical and digital infrastructure 
of libraries,  conceiving and creating services to meet user 
needs and expectations, transforming collections and  access, and 
how all of this will affect the people who work in libraries.

Speakers are: John Blyberg, Assistant Director for Innovation and 
User Services, Darien Public Library, Darien, CT Michael Giarlo, 
Digital Library Architect, Penn State University, University 
Park, PA Jeffrey M. Hoover, Architect, Tappe Associates, Inc., 
Boston, MA Patricia Hswe, Digital Collections Curator, Penn State 
University Libraries, University Park, PA Robert Kieft, College 
Librarian, Occidental College, Los Angeles, CA Michael Miller, 
Dean of Library Services, California Polytechnic State 
University, San Luis Obispo, CA Lizabeth (Betsy) Wilson, Dean of 
University Libraries, University of Washington, Seattle, WA 
Denelle C. Wrightson, Director of Library Architecture, Dewberry, 
Dallas, TX
