Associate Professor Emeritus David Carr from the University of North Carolina's School of Information and Library Science will present the 2010 Johannah Sherrer Memorial Lecture, “Think with Me: The Possibilities of Public Conversations in Cultural Institutions.”The formative legacy of any democratic culture or learning community is borne and embodied by its library. At its best, it is a living, constructive institution where experience and knowledge increase. The aspirations of a community -- what it wants to become and what it hopes to give to its children -- require a generative public conscience and provocative voices. More than a record of our time and place, the library is a record of us as we embrace or turn away from our challenges. We require a place that holds both pages and voices, electrons and arguments; and more: a place where thoughtful citizens will strive to become something together. The lecture will be held in Smith Hall, Albany Quadrangle, at 3 pm. A reception will follow in Albany Quadrangle. The Johannah Sherrer Memorial Lecture was established in 1999 to honor the memory of the former director of Watzek Library. For further information, please visit the Sherrer Lecture webpage.
