Transcript

  • 1. Library Design Project<br />Courtney Trautweiler<br />LIS 5240 – 6/27/2011<br />
  • 2. Introduction<br /><ul><li>The library I have chosen to renovate/innovate is a school library I worked in previously, the Rich Hill High School Library.
  • 3. The Staff consisted of myself and one aide. I was available in the library approximately half of the day, while my aide was available the entire day.
  • 4. The high school library served about 240 students.</li></li></ul><li>Four Areas to Renovate/Innovate<br /><ul><li>Student seating & workspace arrangement
  • 5. Access to technology/wi-fi/power
  • 6. Enhance the ambience with paint/artwork
  • 7. Circulation Desk</li></li></ul><li>Goals in Each of the Four Areas<br />Student Seating & Workspace Goals<br /><ul><li>Replace the current rectangular tables with smaller, mobile square tables.
  • 8. Add comfortable padded chairs
  • 9. Create a soft zone – Add a small sofa and some comfortable chairs to relax in. A small coffee table in the center</li></ul>Technology / Wi – Fi / Power<br /><ul><li>Add an OPAC station and Laptop Cart
  • 10. Make Wi-fi access available to students and teachers
  • 11. Make power plugs available in the floor/tables in the seating and table areas.</li></ul>Ambiance / Visual Improvements<br /><ul><li>Paint the walls with attractive colors
  • 12. Add artwork/posters/mobiles
  • 13. Add plants</li></ul>Circulation Desk<br /><ul><li>Add a Circulation Desk</li></li></ul><li>How these Changes affect the Learning Center<br />Seating:<br /><ul><li>By replacing the long rectangular tables and chairs with smaller tables and more comfortable seating, the cafeteria-like feeling is removed and communication is improved by having the students sitting in a square.
  • 14. By adding the soft zone with sofa and chairs, the students are given a relaxing space to enjoy some downtime.</li></ul>Technology/Wi-fi/Power:<br /><ul><li>Having computers available in the library is critical. Just because the computer lab adjoins the library, doesn’t make technology readily available.
  • 15. Providing wifi access to students and teachers allows them to use their own laptops, increasing efficiency and user friendliness.
  • 16. By adding power plugs in the floor to access the table and sofa areas, users can have access to keep their devices charged and at the ready.</li></li></ul><li>How these Changes affect the Learning Center<br />Ambiance/Visual Improvements<br /><ul><li>Replacing white walls with attractive, color coordinated tones is advantageous, because the glare is gone and color is mentally stimulating.
  • 17. Adding posters/artwork and mobiles is visually and mentally stimulating. They can also promote relaxation and meditation. Yes, I used the word meditation.
  • 18. The placement of plants and adding greenery instills nature on the inside and is also an air quality improvement.</li></ul>Circulation Desk<br /><ul><li>Instead of having two individual desks situated to simulate the circ desk, add a module that has a desk area as well as a standing height desk area to assist students. It always felt awkward, the students standing, me sitting. I would stand up anyway, I think eye level contact is important</li></li></ul><li>Synopsis:<br /><ul><li>By making these innovations and renovations the learning center is improved by becoming a more inviting place with comfortable seating and attractive surroundings.
  • 19. By using mobile tables, the space can also be rearranged for larger groups/class settings.
  • 20. The soft zone allows students to relax and unwind. </li></ul> <br /><ul><li>The increased technology and power allows students to have quick access to a computer even when the lab is in use and by adding wi-fi, the efficiency is increased even more.
  • 21. The addition of a Circ desk creates a management zone, since there were no offices. It also improves the student/librarian communication flow.</li></li></ul><li>Original Library Floor Plan<br />Circulation Area<br />Copy Room/ Storage<br />Tall Stacks<br />Short Stacks<br />Computer Lab<br />Long Tables<br />Doors<br />Windows<br />
