Reinventing Douglas: How One Library Revamped Its Space
Tarabula, Jill M.
Computers in Libraries, v33 n4 p6-11 May 2013
Clinton Community College (CCC) is a small campus serving a rural community just outside the city of Plattsburgh in upstate New York. It is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. The Leroy M. Douglas Sr. Library (Douglas Library) is located in the George Moore Academic and Administrative Building (Moore Building). Prior to becoming a college, the property was the site of a well-known resort hotel established in 1890, the Hotel Champlain. While the Moore Building is magnificent with all of its history and charm, the space occupied by the library was not designed for this purpose. This article discusses how the space was redesigned by repurposing existing spaces and resources, while spending relatively little money to do it.
