The Place of American Libraries Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Wed. October 19, 2011
5:30pm

20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor


From the tiny, little-used collections that accompanied the classical curriculum of early 19th century American colleges to the closed-stack libraries that first supported graduate research to the burgeoning open-stack repositories of the Cold War era and the digital gateways of the 21st century,
Dr. Michael Stoller (Director of Collections and Research Services, NYU’s Division of Libraries) discusses the ways that academic libraries have grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of this country’s research universities. Stoller took his PhD in medieval history at Columbia University and has written extensively about the importance of collaboration between scholars and librarians in shaping the library of the 21st century.
