Student Shadow, Will Sheppard, Summarizes “A Look at Library Spaces”

Will Sheppard attended UNYSLA’s most recent conference as a student shadow. Here is his tale:

The changing nature of libraries is something that concerns information professionals of all types and the large, diverse group of attendees hammered home both the importance and universality of the topic.
