Library as a Partner in Co-Designing Learning Spaces: A Case Study at Tampere University of Technology, Finland
Tevaniemi, Johanna; Poutanen, Jenni; Lähdemäki, Riitta
New Review of Academic Librarianship, v21 n3 p304-324 2015
This article presents a case of co-designed temporary learning spaces at a Finnish academic library, together with the results of a user-survey. The experimental development of the multifunctional spaces offered an opportunity for the library to collaborate with its parent organisation thus broadening the role of the library. Hence, library can be seen as a third player facilitating learning spaces. Additionally, the library's own expertise was strengthened through successful cooperation with the undergraduate students and other actors. The results support prior research, where studying in the library is target-oriented differing from other learning spaces in providing support and resources.
