  23. 23. Challenges• Communicating changes to school community• Send library newsletter home with students o discuss physical changes and new furniture o provide photographs o Homepage URL address• Invite school community to open house to promote access to the Library Homepage and the new student lounge area• At staff meetings discuss the changes implemented and their impact on student success and learning experiences
  24. 24. ConclusionCommunicate the positive success of the changes to the organization and access of resources!• Physical Space is cramped, uninviting and uncomfortable! o create more attractive looking space by repositioning furniture and creating a lounge area• Furniture is minimal and unsuitable in size for students o changes are needed to the shape and height of the tables and height of the chairs o additional furniture needed to create lounge area
  25. 25. Conclusion continued Homepage is non-existent and thus discourages user independence and does not promote valuable digital resources available on line Currently, minimal access to computers makes it difficult to support research and technology skills ◦ access to a Homepage will support user independence, research and technology skills and will promote the use of the libraryIf all changes are met, the FES library will be successful in it’s goals!
