Space Design and Assessment Librarian

About me

I lead the Library Environments department, a team of librarians and staff. We strive to improve the in-person library experience by making our buildings more functional, welcoming, and accessible. Our work applies to public, staff, and programmed (service) spaces. We do this work by applying our skills and expertise in data collection and analysis, user and participatory research methods, service and space design, and process and workflow analysis. Our department designs and implements user-focused research about how our buildings, collections, and services are used in order to inform physical design decisions across our library buildings. We partner with Library Facilities and other departments to facilitate the design and implementation of improvement and renovation projects in our buildings, aligned with strategic priorities and directions. In my role I collaborate with library administration, librarians, and staff across all library units to develop, inform or coordinate major initiatives associated with designing adaptive learning and research library spaces.
