I just set up my desk in the main part of my library to give a presentation. It has me thinking about where I work. There has been some discussion this spring about the law library as a service vs a place or space. For examples, see:
- For each library, a librarian. Preferably in it.
- “Climbing the Value Ladder: Rethinking the Law Library on the Road to 2020” Discussed by Jordan Furlong Keynote Speaker at PLL Summit
- The 3 Foot Radius of the Law Library
Today, I have a projector and portable screen attached to a virtual machine with a keyboard and mouse set up on the library table. Our space can be used for a presentation for 5, or 7 if some sit on the couch. It is a small space. My goal is to give the presentation of electronic products in the same physical space as the texts in the library to promote a sense of unity in research materials regardless of the format the information is accessible in.
Where do you work?
