Learning spaces, such as lecture halls, teaching laboratories, and quiet study nooks are still needed, but no longer fulfill the full range of students’ needs. As students choose to learn in dynamic environments, they need spaces that support intellectual curiosity and facilitate critical inquiry. By implementing a full spectrum of learning spaces, the University of Michigan Library reinforced the message that we are the place on campus where emerging information technologies, rich information resources, and user-focused services come together to support learning and scholarship. This presentation will provide critical concepts that are important to consider when transforming library spaces.
