With over 10,000 visits a day, D. H. Hill Library is undoubtedly a popular campus destination, but have you ever wondered exactly what our students do while they are here? Ph.D. student Dana Gierdowski and librarian Kim Duckett turned that question into a research project. Next Monday, April 30, at 11 a.m., they will present their findings in a talk entitled “Assessing Student Perceptions and Uses of Library Spaces” in the Assembly Room of D.H. Hill Library.
Over the past couple of years library staff have used a variety of strategies to understand how students do their work as well as their perceptions and uses of existing library spaces and other non-classroom spaces. This presentation highlights one project which focused on students’ perceptions and use patterns in the variety of new learning spaces in D. H. Hill Library’s West Wing. In this seminar, Gierdowski and Duckett will share an overview of the project and key findings.
Dana Gierdowski is a Doctoral Candidate in the Communication, Rhetoric, and Digital Media Program at North Carolina State University, where she studies formal and informal learning spaces in higher education.
Kim Duckett is the Principal Librarian for Digital Technologies and Learning at the North Carolina State University Libraries.
This seminar is presented by the NCSU Librarians’ Association (NCSULA). NCSULA’s mission is to provide members with professional enrichment opportunities. This event is free and open to the public.
