Library Learning Space
Looking for some ideas to help you rethink your teaching and learning space in the library? Check out this site. It is a place to go to see how other libraries are using their space for instruction. They have a nice image gallery where visitors can leave comments as well as pages on furniture ideas, info on vendors, floor plans, and a place for discussion. I have seen a lot of talk on various listservs on the library as space topic, especially as it pertains to instruction--how to make the library more functional, how to be more creative with instruction rooms, how to make better use of what we have (since few of us have the money to renovate or build new space), what kind of laptop cart should be used, and what about furniture choices/options. If you have been asking these kinds of questions, you should definitely visit this site.
