Following a 2011 Learning Commons renovation focused on refreshed study spaces, a new adaptive plan developed by UMass Lowell Libraries and the architecture firm Perry Dean Rogers is shaping the library's future space by examining functional services and programming. New faculty partnerships support curating book collections but also explore shared, integrated, hoteling spaces and active participation in traditional library services. New advocates are being found through university administrators. And students increasingly play a role as change agents for services. An architect and librarian will share information about the process for this planning and insights from the work they have completed.
