Re-Placing the library; Spatial practices in the 21st century library, with Daniel Payne, Head, Instructional Services, OCAD U Library

 

Libraries evoke a myriad of impressions in popular culture; most would agree, however, that the library is not just a mundane space, but an esteemed “place.” Yet are these impressions detrimental to envisioning the library in the 21st century? Daniel will use Henri Lefebvre’s spatial theories to decode popular perceptions of libraries.
