Goucher College’s new library opened this month. (Joey Pulone for The Chronicle)
One of the most popular Chronicle articles last week was our description of the Athenaeum, the new library building at Goucher College. During the building’s opening week, Goucher invited some prominent people to come talk about libraries, library buildings, and the liberal arts. Now some of those talks are available as a podcast.
The hour-and-a-half program included Carla Hayden, chief executive officer of the Enoch Pratt Free Library (the city library of Baltimore); Kathryn Allamong, the curator of manuscripts at the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies at Harvard University; James Neal, the university librarian at Columbia University; Joseph Rizzo, an architect for RMJM Hillier, the firm that designed the Athenaeum; Roberta Stevens, the president-elect of the American Library Association; and Sanford J. Ungar, the president of Goucher.
