Rod Library and Facilities Planning are embarking on a semester-long library building feasibility study. With the development of the learning commons, other space changes that have been suggested, and the integration of the UNI Museums into the building, we thought it would be prudent to take a more systematic look at library space.
We've hired OPN Architects (http://www.opnarchitects.com/
The goals of the library building feasibility study are:
- To analyze how library space is currently used
- Explore space trends in academic libraries
- Get feedback from various user groups across campus about what they would like to see to meet their needs
- Develop a 20-year vision for library space changes.
The result will be a report which will be shared with the campus and which will guide future library renovation projects, including the potential for a library-wide renovation at some future time.
