Ennead Principal, Alex O'Briant is presenting "Charting a New Course: Welcoming, Inclusive, & Collaborative Academic Libraries" at the SCUP 2023 Annual Conference in collaboration with Abigail Smith Hanby, Strategy Director, brightspot strategy and Martha Whitehead, Vice President for the Harvard Library, Harvard University.

The academic library is in a period of transition. With careful planning universities can become cultivators of curiosity instead of gatekeepers, improving access, supporting open and global knowledge networks, and fostering more diverse scholarship. In our era of decentralized digital information, what keeps an academic library at the heart of the academic enterprise? Harvard University has a plan to make its main libraries more accessible, more welcoming, and central to global knowledge. Join us to discover how institutions can forge connections between the traditional academic library’s value and a new frontier of possibilities.
