• Using Data to Plan Library Renovations

      Hart, Kristin; Bram, Katie (2016-06)
      SUNY Maritime librarians have an opportunity to overhaul their space as part of a SUNY grant for an “Academic Success Center” — the first renovation of this AIA-award winning space since the 1970s. The library needed to determine how to adapt its space for exciting new purposes, incorporating its needs with the needs of the Learning Center, the administration, the faculty, and the students. We used surveys, observations, and visioning groups to quantify these needs and elicit ideas. This presentation will examine how we collected and used various forms of data to guide our process, including successes and pitfalls.
