Academic Library Seating: A Survey of Usage, with Implications for Space Utilization.
Organ, Michael; Jantti, Margie
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v28 n3 p205-16 Sep 1997
To identify areas where seats could be removed to accommodate a growing collection, the University of Wollongong (New South Wales, Australia) library surveyed patron seating usage. The survey supported a 12% reduction in seating, which enabled the installation of additional shelving and a compactus to store 20,000 volumes while having a minimal impact on patrons. (PEN)
