DLIS Assistant Professor Dr. Lee presented on her latest research, Creating Authentic Teen Spaces in Public Libraries, at the Melville Marriott Vanderbilt Room during Session II of the Conference.

Dr. Lee’s presentation explored the relationship between people and the spaces they inhabit, with a understanding of the effects of architecture and design on behaviors – specifically with regards to teen spaces in public libraries.
