Abstract

Library users visit our spaces to actively research, but they also need study space, technology access, meeting space, and more. In restricted budget environments that don't allow us to drastically change our spaces, how can we meet the needs of our users in creative and meaningful ways? At UNC Libraries, we've run a number of projects and events that seek to change the use of our spaces in new ways making the library space more welcoming to users.
