Event Re-examining How We Work: What should we do with the staff?

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Fri, Jun 7, 2013 at 01:25 pm

How are smaller workforces and new technologies affecting library staff space design? Resources are shrinking while demands for public space are increasing. Mobile service desks, flexible use and other changes are impacting staff space. Behind the scene functions are being outsourced or automated. Learn to reconfigure and re-imagine workspaces to maximize productivity and flexibility. Explore new designs for non-traditional staff spaces that reflect new paradigms, and allow for effective communication and quiet vs. collaborative work.

Online Doc Presentation Materials for Designing a Specialty Commons & Program Evaluations

by James Lutz on Fri, Aug 5, 2011 at 01:55 pm

This panel featured a discussion on space, furniture, equipment considerations in various specialty commons in three academic libraries in Michigan, North Carolina, and California. Examples of specialty commons include a library data lab, a learning commons, a digital media lab, a technology sandbox, and spatial and numeric data center. What was the impetus for creating them? What design criteria/adjacencies/services should be considered when planning such a space? What makes these spaces successful? How can proper planning support/enhance the role of the library and librarians?
