NCompass Live: From Collections to Commons: How we turned stacks to student spaces at UNL - Online 

Description

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries found itself on a fast track to create a 21,000 square foot learning commons in the spring of 2014. Preparations included moving 400,000 volumes off the floor, working with architects, construction managers and furniture vendors to plan the space and select a vendor to provide a coffee shop/bakery. The Adele Coryell Hall Learning Commons opened as scheduled in January of 2016. Our presentation will cover the planning and construction phases as well as management of the space since the opening.

Presenters: Regina Flowers, Adele Hall Learning Commons Manager; Deb Pearson, Head, Libraries Facilities and Planning; Michael Straatmann, Circulation Manager; University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries.
