Greater convenience, comfort offered at university libraries | Changing role of libraries | Scoop.it
The atmosphere at Rikkyo University’s Ikebukuro Library in Tokyo was buzzing with energy, even though classes were canceled.

 

For many, university libraries are places where students read quietly and independently.  But many libraries are transforming into places where students gather for group discussions and to teach one another.

 

These libraries are improving user support services in ways that contrast with the traditional image, including extending their hours late into the night, as they try to become the “academic home base” for their students.
