NCompass Live: Life in Fort Schuyler: The Challenges Faced at the SUNY Maritime College Library

SUNY Maritime College’s Stephen B. Luce Library is located in a preserved 19th century fort. While working in a fort is certainly cool, it does present myriad challenges for librarians trying to move the Library into the 21st century. This presentation will highlight some of the major and minor challenges of working within a building designed for war, not learning.

Presenter: Chante Hope, Instruction and Outreach Librarian, SUNY Maritime College, Bronx, NY.
