Description

Join us on Wednesday, February 15th at Langan (360 west 31st Street, 8th Fl., NY, NY 10001) for a program on "The Future of the Architecture Materials Library".


With everything online, why do architecture firms still need a materials library? Most architects are interested in implementing online product information tools providing they guarantee increased productivity and reduced staffing and real-estate requirements. Of special concern is how to effectively manage the digital divide - harnessing product information tools embraced by those who prefer to work on the Internet without impacting older architects' productivity. Respected resource consultant Suzanne Swift lets you know where we are in the migration from materials library to online library and helps you answer the question "Can I get rid of my library?"


The program will begin with 8:30-9:00 am breakfast and networking, 9-10am presentation
