Back in 2004, I was the only student in my high school who had the permission to borrow more than one book from my school’s library at a time.
Libraries played an important role in my life, and over time, the definition of this “library” changed in my mind to represent large repositories of knowledge in general. I believe that, with the rapid growth of information technology, traditional libraries need to evolve to embody this more generalized definition. And this implies development of online tools, easy access to information across the globe, and enabling learners to learn smoothly and efficiently.
My role at EdLab, Gottesman Libraries is to enable this transformation through my work in the development and research team.
