By retiring the old e-classroom we lost a room that was open workstation study space for students when not used for
classes. Use patterns and seat counts had indicated it was underutilized for that purpose and equivalent spaces exist
elsewhere in the building.
Closed our undergraduate library and incorporated library services into our main library for the humanities and
social sciences.
Discontinued math tutors due to poor response.
Fine Arts: choice to embed librarians in the academic classroom for instruction and provide office hours in the
departments led to repurposing the library classroom in favor of flexible interactive space.
Gate and floor counts indicate we need more space available after midnight, which we are working to do.
Graduate collaboratives: dispensed with high-end tech in favor of plug-and-play monitors, also modified size of
graduate collaboratives built subsequently, opting for a standard 6–8 maximum, rather than larger.
Helped us to justify merger of some service points.
Integrated service desk led to reference desk being reassigned.
LibAnalytics used to determine shift in service hours provided in reference, circulation/reserves and Learning Commons
Technical Support (IT).
Moving map services to a low traffic area and converting the space to innovation and group collaboration space.
Presentation space in Library East Commons was specific use we ended presentation rehearsal studio changed due to
low stats.
The most significant change has been the removal of print reference materials from the informal learning spaces that
have typically surrounded reference desks. Materials have been weeded, transferred to the regular stacks, or been put in
our onsite auxiliary storage area.
The Undergraduate Library has reconfigured its service desks.
We closed a government documents and microforms service desk to make space for additional group study rooms.
We closed the Re:Search Start service until we can develop another, scalable service with a dedicated space in a
learning commons.
We combined two multimedia centers into one physical location.
We had a formal AV production room but those services are now being distributed in other ways. We have a Mac Lab
with 20 iMacs all with multimedia software and it is no longer limited to the production room.
We made a group study area with computers into a quiet space based on surveys.
We used to host walk-in assistance with time management and academic stress but demand was very light and this is
now provided by appointment at a location outside the libraries.
