Location: DML - Nazarian Pavilion Courtyard
When is a library not a library? How can the design of a space shape the experience of interacting with information?
Join us for the opening of Microlibraries in the Everywhere, a collaboration between the USC Libraries and USC School of Architecture, featuring 8 microlibraries scattered among the University Park and Health Sciences campuses.
Our opening event in Doheny Library's Nazarian Pavilion courtyard (outside Literatea) features a discussion with USC professor of architecture Lee Olvera and the creators of the microlibraries, which will be on display at the opening event before they move to their final locations.
These structures contain unique and freely available collections of books and other materials, functioning as pieces of sculptural public art, vessels of authoritative information, and sites of curated knowledge that interact with the history and current communities of inquiry located across campus.
