Good morning,


The NSF Library is currently evaluating its layout and usage of space, and we were considering creating a study/meeting room that would provide library patrons with a quiet space to work or hold small meetings.


Most of the federal libraries’ public websites didn’t mention whether or not study/meeting rooms were present, so I was hoping that I could gather some information here.  If anyone could take the time to answer the following questions, it would be very helpful to our efforts:


1.        Does your library offer study/meeting rooms?

If yes:

2.       How is the study room furnished?  (Desk, table & chairs, etc.)

3.       How often are the meeting rooms used by library patrons (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.)?

4.       Do you feel that a meeting/study room is a valuable part of your library’s services?  Explain.

5.       Any other thoughts or comments?


Please send any responses to [log in to unmask].  Thank you very much!
