Libraries are changing rapidly from places to store and access information individually to places to connect, create, and collaborate. In response, campuses are looking to add study and instructional spaces, consolidate academic services, and renew existing buildings. Looking across a half-dozen case studies ranging from top liberal arts colleges to major public research universities, Elliot Felix and Amanda Wirth guide participants through a process they can use on their campuses including conducting research, establishing a vision, forecasting needs, rationalizing the spaces and services across locations and within buildings, and identifying phases and pilots. Institutions can create flexible long-term plans that produce measurable results in the near-term.
