In recent years, library historians have turned their attention to the ways in which segregated library facilities, and collections, services, and programming within them, played a role in the formation of racial consciousness among library patrons both white and African-American. This panel presentation will present recent research into the histories of segregated public libraries in Memphis and New Orleans, as well as segregated Carnegie libraries throughout the South.

I'm very interested in innovative metrics to help us learn more about what patrons really want from a library and how they use the library
