Quick and (Mostly) Painless Space Usage Assessment Using iPadsBrite, Amanda; Miller-Wells, John; Pfander, Jeanne; Yildirim, Hayri; University of Arizona Libraries; (2012-04-24)The Library Space Usage Assessment project was initiated in September 2011 in an attempt to answer questions about how public spaces were currently being utilized at the University of Arizona Libraries. The project team utilized iPads and an online data collection form to gather data on customer activity over a period of three weeks during the fall 2011 semester. This poster presents an overview of the tools and methodology developed by the project team to conduct the assessment. The presentation also highlights the results of the project team's assessment efforts and how those results informed recent changes to library services.
