Video Recording of an RLUK Space Programme Event: Hybrid and Blended Working Approaches and the Role of Space in Libraries
RLUK’s Space Programme is a forum for RLUK members to engage in open dialogue and share their knowledge and experience around spatial redesign and capital builds. This seminar features three presentations focusing on the impact the recent shift in working practices has had on the design and use of library spaces, both physical and digital, and the implications for their development and running. The speakers share their experiences about how the change in working places and environments has affected the roles and practices of library and information professionals in their institutions and the way they deliver user services.
The event was chaired by David Wright, Associate Director for User Experience, University of Southampton Library & RLUK Space Programme Committee Member.
