"Redesigning a Library Space for Collaborative Learning"

I read this article in the May 2007 issue of Computers in Libraries. Contact information for furniture companies is included. Click here to link to the article.

Redesigning a Library Space for Collaborative Learning. By: Gabbard, Ralph B.; Kaiser, Anthony; Kaunelis, David. Computers in Libraries, May2007, Vol. 27 Issue 5, p6-11

The article presents information on a project which involves redesigning a library space at Indiana State University for collaborative learning. The proposed new collaborative learning model for the university's library features personal computers, Windows XP Pro and full Office XP Suite. According to the authors, the collaborative workstations have been widely accepted by students, since their introduction in 2003. The collaborative workstations were place as far apart as possible to reduce the noise from each space.
