        Principles central to American culture, as codified in the U.S. Constitution, are also central to librarianship. In 1939, the American Library Association adopted the Library Bill of Rights, affirming "that all libraries are forums for information and ideas." Ensuring that our citizens are informed, given the freedom to explore interests while protected from personal privacy violations, is imperative to libraries' success. Join Molly Keener, Scholarly Communication Librarian, Z. Smith Reynolds Library, for the University's annual Constitution Day lecture to hear how librarianship's Constitutional foundations inform responses to our critical current issues, from freedom of speech to privacy to net neutrality.

                    Bad libraries build collections; good libraries build services (after all a collection is only one type of service); great libraries build communities. In a time of great change and challenges to the very model of higher education, libraries must move beyond a focus on collections to a focus on communities. As new models of instruction (flipped classrooms, inquiry based instruction, etc.) and research emerge (interdisciplinary, large scale, collaborative, data driven), libraries find themselves well positioned – but only if they see their strongest assets as the librarians, not the materials librarians have organized. This talk will look to a new librarianship that moves past artifacts to knowledge and sets a new path.
