  • 29. “Academic libraries are a refuge for those who live in noisy dorms or need a place conducive to study... libraries are natural gathering places for groups to study and provide social space for students to meet between classes. These features will be more important in the future as remote access to information isolates users and students seek learning and social spaces where they can interact with others.”
