Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Library exhibits are evolving to incorporate interactive elements, participatory experiences, and tech-driven media installations. The future of exhibits remains focused on engaging and informing the public, but new tools and approaches allow library professionals to design their exhibits in exciting new ways. This session will bring together two perspectives - Beth Prindle, Head of Special Collections at Boston Public Library, and Jonathan Alger, exhibit designer and co-founder of C&G Partners - to talk about the evolution of library exhibits and the growing relationship between library professionals and designers and technologists. Prindle and Alger will share the tools and techniques that have helped Boston Public Library - and can help other libraries - implement their own innovative exhibit experiences.
