The Study Group was constituted in March 2012 and charged with examining both library public services and library public spaces with the goals of developing a new service model and adapting existing library space to better serve library clientele’s needs. To those ends, the group has reviewed library use statistics, surveyed articles from the professional literature that review the experiences of other libraries, and made site visits to Florida State University and the University of Central Florida, both of which have recently developed knowledge or learning commons and reexamined their own service models.
