ALIA New Librarians' Symposium 9 (NLS9), 5-7 July 2019 Adelaide: collaborate deviate innovate
This presentation (PowerPoint slides) supported the lightning talk on libraries as a place for our creative and intellectual lives.
Since the publication of Ray Oldenburg’s "The Great Good Place" in 1999, librarians have embraced the possibility that libraries are a third place – a place for our social and community lives. However, my doctoral research indicates that libraries are instead a fourth place – a place for our creative and intellectual lives. This session will describe the ways libraries are fourth places.
