Attend Bergren Forum to learn about 'Future of Libraries'

Brian Sullivan, Alfred University (AU) librarian at Herrick Memorial Library, will present “Not Dead Yet: Reflections on the Future of Libraries” as a part of the University’s Bergren Forum Series.  The presentation will take place on Thursday, Feb. 27 at 12:10 p.m. in Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center. The event is open to the public free of charge. 

Sullivan will be exploring the future of libraries during the electronic age and the importance of preserving printed archives and literacy.  Other discussion topics will include Google, books (print and electronic), and the claim that libraries are dead or dying.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in English from the State University of New York at Fredonia, Sullivan continued his education earning a master’s degree in theological studies from Roberts Wesleyan College, Rochester, and a master of library and information science degree from the University at Buffalo.

The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
