Description

As space in libraries is usually finite and in high demand, how can librarians ensure the best allocation of space to meet users' ever growing and changing needs? A team from the University of Tennessee's School of Information Sciences and Libraries designed and implemented two academic library space assessment studies to find meaningful answers to these questions as well as learn the principles, methods, and tools of space design and space assessment, many of which they will share with session attendees!
