Current Projects

Visual Merchandising

Part strike force, part R&D lab, this effort is a thrust into exploring and implementing new pedagogies, new media, new technologies, and a new concept of librarian engagement.

Bio-Inspired Design

I am working with a biology student on a paper that reimagines library spaces as ecological environments. This will challenge our thinking on learning habitats and hopefully introduce some new ideas for interior design.


“Library as platform” has become a popular concept. I’ve been sketching notes on this theme over the past year and I hope to contribute to that line of thinking.

Social Innovation

I recently spoke at the Entrepreneurial Librarian Conference. I’m turning that talk into a paper. It is a blend of philosophy and practice, largely based on my work at UCSB.
