Claim your space: re-placing spaces to better meet the needs of the net generation
Burke, L., Benn, J. and Kiel, R. (2008) Claim your space: re-placing spaces to better meet the needs of the net generation. In: VALA2008 14th Biennial Conference and Exhibition: Libraries/Changing Spaces, Virtual Places, 5 - 7 February 2008, Melbourne, Vic.
The challenge for the Reid Library at The University of Western Australia was the transformation of a 1960s building into a welcoming space with services and facilities appropriate for a more technologically demanding generation. A key issue was how to balance the continuing need for access to physical collections with the rapidly expanding demand for new kinds of learning spaces and facilities oriented towards on-line and collaborative learning and research. This paper outlines the approach taken to identify client needs (both physical and virtual), define and propose new service models, and transform learning spaces while maintaining access to physical collections.
