Oct 28, 2011 12:00am ‐ Oct 28, 2011 12:00am

Cushing Academy Library eliminated its huge book collection over the last year, turning that library into an all digital facility. Other independent schools have chosen different ways to meld cutting edge technology into traditional book collections, including the Learning Commons model. Speakers will discuss how administration was involved in these changes on their campuses, and consider broader questions for the school libraries: how can schools best consider the balance of digital and print resources for the most successful student achievement.
