Presentation to undergraduates on Library’s evolution

Cassandra Beck

A presentation about the historical aspects and past locations of the University Library will take place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Monday in Room 303 of Taylor Hall.

The presentation, titled “The Many Guises of the KSU Library,” will be given by assistant professor Stephen Paschen. The presentation will be for an undergraduate class who will use the library as a case study for a semester-long project. The presentation is open to the public.

“We’re going to be looking at the evolution of the University Library over time,” said architecture professor Daniel Vieyra. “We’ll focus on the evolution of campus designs.”

Students will look at and research how they think the library’s designs and structure can improve.

Paschen said he will use historical photographs and interior and exterior examples of designs the library has used.

“It will be the basic story of how the library has operated over the years,” Paschen said. “I will be discussing the library through design points of view.”
