Libraries as Spaces for 21st Century Learners and Learning: A New Report from the Learning Spaces Collaboratory (LSC) and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI)
I’m very pleased to announce the availability of a report from a roundtable held in December 2018 and sponsored by the Learning Spaces Collaboratory (LSC) and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI).
The report highlights trends in developing spaces for learning in libraries and how we might “interview” those spaces to determine whether they are meeting the needs of the project. The roundtable included talks from four architects and small group discussions around selected types of spaces. These included staff spaces and entry spaces, aspects of projects that sometimes receive less attention than they should. In addition, groups discussed innovation zones, quiet spaces, and consultation spaces.
Diane Goldenberg-Hart of CNI authored the report with contributions from Jeanne Narum and Jennifer Luebbert of the Learning Spaces Collaboratory and myself.
