Poster #4 -- Surviving a Catastrophic Space Renovation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The LibQual survey was used to assess the quality of our library services. The end results revealed a strong desire for more collaborative and study spaces. A “Taskforce Committee” was formed to address different strategies for creating more spaces. We collaborated with campus facilities and hired a company to move our books and bookshelves. Unfortunately, the company was inexperienced and demolished our books and bookshelves. Ultimately, we involved our upper Administration to reprimand the company and assist us with resolving repairs. The purpose of this poster presentation is to demonstrate how we capitalized on the survey data and renovated our library spaces. The poster presentation will cover the survey data analysis process, the formation of the “Library Space Taskforce Committee,” and the transformation of our spaces. Attendees of the presentation will learn “tips and secrets” on how to negotiate with campus facilities personnel, outside contractors, and upper Administration.
