University libraries are shaping the future of learning and research

University libraries are shaping the future of learning and research | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Far from reaching its due-by date, academic library architecture is reflecting and predicting how we learn now and into the future
Carlos Fosca's insight:

La Bibliotecas Universitarias deben ser completamente remordenizadas en su concepción. No pueden ser almacenes de libros y revistas, deben ser ambientes centrados en las personas, que encuentran en la Biblioteca un espacio muy estimulante para el aprendizaje.  En consecuencia, el diseño de los ambientes debe incorporar más espacios multipropósito, zonas de trabajo colaborativo y mucho espacio para disfrutar de un aprendizaje social.

 

"Libraries were places of silence with pockets of group work and activity. In the 21st century university, they are becoming places of learning activity with pockets of silence." (Les Watson, university library consultant and former pro vice-chancellor at Glasgow Caledonian University).
