Rethinking and Revising Learning Spaces in the Library

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What do the study spaces in your library look like? Have they adapted to meet the changing work habits of students? Learn how two high school media centers and a university library adapted their student study and learning spaces.

Media Specialists Lisa Gearman and Sara Swenson share their journeys to reinvent learning spaces in two different high schools. Academic librarians Brooke Cox and Caroline Gilson will discuss how DePauw University Libraries addressed planning, adapting and assessing library study spaces to meet student needs. We will provide practical advice on design possibilities that can be scaled and tweaked for any library space or budget. There will be time for Q & A with the presenters and hands-on brainstorming and planning.
