Academic Library Spaces: Advancing Student Success and Helping Students Thrive
Spencer, Mary Ellen; Watstein, Sarah Barbara
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v17 n2 p389-402 Apr 2017
Are today's academic libraries really designed for learning? Do library spaces impact student learning? Intending to spark broader and more informed dialogue about the relationship between the quality of learning and the quality of academic library spaces in higher education, the authors consider the concept of space as service; student learning and learning space; learning and its relationship to space; attributes of student learning spaces; and the assessment of learning spaces. The discussion of assessment includes formal and informal spaces, challenges to assessment, and recent projects designed to assess both spaces themselves and the impact of space on learning.
