Abstract: The seeds of innovation are changing how libraries use their space and plan for future remodels, renovations or expansions. Common examples of this could be converting space from materials storage to user space needs, or developing spaces around technology enhancements. Technology driven initiatives that impact space usually start as small ideas or seeds of innovative initiatives, such as makerspaces, but are growing into digital media centers, video and imaging rooms, gaming labs and augmented reality spaces. It’s all about learning and how the library building can support learning efforts in a new dynamic and changing environment, thus the needed justification for future flexibility in space planning.
