  • 4. project settings:branson &amp; zuhl libraries<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 5. directives: <br />relocate low-use collections <br />shelving expansion<br />create new user spaces<br />with limited funds $<br />short timeframe<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 6. spaces &amp; learning<br />3 traditional approaches:<br />service/instruction<br />marketing<br />mission-based<br />New Mexico State University<br />

  • 9. triangulated study<br />
  • 10. observational/photo research <br />we used photos to:<br />gather data on use of the same spaces over time (9am/1pm/4pm/7pm/10pm)<br />capture images that told a story about space and space use (good/bad/ugly) <br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 11. time series @ 9am/4pm/10pm<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 12. commentary / pictures that tell a story <br /> “I’m not sure if we get funding for having these in our library, but do we really need six of them?” <br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 13. commentary / pictures that tell a storyMORE COMPUTERS Perhaps along with more computers, we could give the students a little more room to work?<br />
  • 14. building use surveys<br />we used surveys to:<br />learn about our building users (imperfect)<br />gain consistent quantifiable data through fixed questions/answers<br />gain richer qualitative data through open-ended questions/answers<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 15. analyzing building use surveys<br />print/electronic options<br />quantitative data analyzed with SurveyMonkey<br />text comments analyzed, categorized for themes<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 16. flip chart feedback<br />we used flip charts to:<br />offer a visible, social feedback tool<br />gather rich (textual) data on our spaces<br />used in initial study and in follow-up to “close the loop”<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 17. analyzing flip chart feedback<br />standardized common concepts (e.g., noise, noisy, loud, deafening)<br />used text cloud generator to show results<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 18. putting the pieces together<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 19. what we did<br />New Mexico State University<br />make space available<br />add warmth and light<br />help individuals and groups<br />focus on flexibility<br />recycle and repurpose<br />

  • 25. helping individuals<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 26. cool tools for flexibility<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 27. recycling and repurposing<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 28. follow-up assessments reveal…<br />LIKES = computers, space<br />DISLIKES = noise, not enough computers<br />SURPRISES = privacy<br />New Mexico State University<br />
  • 29. future hopes <br />spaces for faculty/student interaction<br />group study/presentation rooms<br />individual research studies<br />event spaces<br />New Mexico State University<br />
