“From designing library instruction to renovating spaces to creating elegant discovery platforms, aesthetics and utility are at the core of the work we do in libraries and as librarians, archivists, and information specialists. How might we seek more beauty and usability in our exhibitions, projects, programming, services, collections, and instruction?

We invite you to present a perspective of your own on this theme by proposing highly interactive sessions that may consist of hands-on workshops, conversations, small group activities, or other innovative and takeaway-driven formats. We also welcome ideas for our IdeaLibrary (book, game, and inspiration library) & TinkerLab (mobile makerspace and demo area)…”
