9 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Relaxing Food & Noise Rules Pros Matches desires More inviting Director wants it Cons Affect on facility Noise/food cops Staff resistance Results: Staff flocks to coffee cart Facility still clean enough Enforcement not problematic Patron usage increases

10 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Checkout Laptop Service Pros Matches needs Bragging rights Director wants it Cons Theft & abuse Connectivity issues Tech Support cost Results: Overwhelming support by students Expanded from 20 to 120 laptops Theft and abuse not significant Major Tech Support & Circulation issues

11 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Add Productivity Tools to EIC Pros Strong user demand Cant block Success of laptops Director wants it Cons Staff resistance Loss of EIC focus Lack of equipment Tech Support issues Results: Overwhelming usage by students Positioned to support campus technology PC security has become a major issue Significant Tech Support issues

12 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Lessons Learned What Worked For CSU –Checkout laptop service (at a cost) –Wireless computing (at a cost)

13 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Adjacent Spaces Electronic Information Labs are adjacent to the Electronic Information Center Labs are opened for general use as needed

14 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries What Worked For CSU –Relaxing food and noise rules –More group study rooms –More assistive technology

15 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Gate Count vs. Enrollment

17 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Future Frontiers –Continue laptop checkout service –Checkout portable projection kits –Continue group & quiet zones –Search for multiple-use public spaces

18 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries To Boldly Go … –Use of portable dividing walls? –Size of on-site collection? –Support/promote online chat? (chatty Ask-A-Librarian) –Hours of operation?

19 March 18, 2005Computers in Libraries Where to put 2,000 more seats?
