  2. 2. A Year of Change <ul><li>This was a year of change in the library, and rebranding the facility as the information center of the school. </li></ul><ul><li>New flexible floor plan instituted along with new shelving. </li></ul><ul><li>Many new technologies brought into the library. </li></ul><ul><li>Most importantly, more students accessed the library. </li></ul>

  6. 7. Library Usage Analysis <ul><li>March was by the far biggest month in terms of students in the library.

However, the new floor plan allows the library to be open to other students when a class is in.

  21. 27. Goals for 2011-2012 <ul><li>With the coming of student wireless access, I need to be able to have the library be on their computers. This means: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Finalize the library webpage </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upgrade to a web-based catalog such as Follett Destiny </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Continue to build a culture of reading at Monument through the faculty and student book clubs </li></ul><ul><li>Build collaborative lessons with teachers on research and information literacy skills, making the library not just a place for classes to come to use the computers but also a place for instruction. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This requires coming up with a better “classroom” space within the library. That space is currently right by the main entrance to the library and it can be disruptive with people coming and going. </li></ul></ul>
