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.

Platform

“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.
