UTS: The Library of the Future on YouTube


At UTS, plans for a new library building to open in 2015 are fuelling a re-imagining of our library. We are moving towards a new sustainable, client focussed and innovative library that will find its physical expression in a new library building, but is envisioned as being situated equally in the physical and digital environments. In this paper, we aim to describe our vision of the future by revealing some of the plans and projects already underway at UTS Library, and also by speculating a bit on our future – and perhaps yours.
