New Library Facilities: Opportunities for Collaboration
Lippincott, Joan K.
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v17 n1-2 p147-157 2004
As academic libraries renovate or build new spaces that provide services to users, they should consider opportunities to collaborate with other units on campus to develop collaborative services in the new space. These collaborative spaces, such as information commons, teaching and learning centers, and multi-media studios, offer advantages such as providing seamless services to users, leveraging the technology and information expertise of several professional specialties, and pooling resources from more than one campus unit. Careful attention to the planning process is needed in order to ensure mutual understanding of the project goals, responsibilities, resource contributions, and services.
