Syracuse University Library to hold forum on library's future

The Syracuse University campus community is invited to attend “What is a library?”—an open forum about the future of the University’s library, on Wednesday, December 9 at 11 a.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons on Bird Library’s first floor.

Administrators and librarians from the library’s Department of Research, Collection, and Scholarly Communication will lead the conversation. Topics covered will include:

   • What is the role of the library within Syracuse University?
   • How can the library support Syracuse University's mission?
   • Does the library adequately support faculty and student scholarship at Syracuse University?
   • Why does Syracuse University’s library need a storage facility?

The campus’s reaction to recent plans regarding the off-site storage of library materials demonstrated the need to engage the University in a dialogue about the library’s mission and activities.

If you can't attend the forum but want to contribute to the conversation, please e-mail your comments to Charlotte Hess, associate dean of Collections, Research, and Scholarly Communication at
