Scott Bennett, portal: Libraries and the Academy

Every year, the Press and the editorial board of portal: Libraries and the Academy choose one essay from the previous volume for an award. This year, an essay from Yale University Librarian Emeritus Scott Bennett was chosen for the honor. Bennett's article "Libraries and Learning: A History of Paradigm Change" appeared in the April 2009 issue and challenges librarians to align library space design with the ways information technology has changed how people learn.
