The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) has embarked on a major redevelopment of its City Campus. A key element of this redevelopment is the planned construction of a new University Library at the centre of the redeveloped campus on the current site of Building 2, adjoining the UTS Tower, Building 1. This Library of the Future, which is planned to open for academic year 2015, will be a new kind of academic library which will aim to set a standard for the future. The focus of this report is on envisaging a Library of the Future, what it might be when it opens and how it might develop to retain its novelty so that it will continue to surprise and excite. To endeavour to imagine and create a Library of the Future is a daring and humbling enterprise: it must be designed to foster an effective academic community in the long term at UTS through its role as the knowledge hub of the University.
