Get into the zone

December 4 / Study zone

Shirley Public Library, United Kingdom

Different students study in different ways

The demand for library study zones is increasing as many students use the library for both individual and group study. However, what one student expects from a study zone can differ vastly from another. Some students simply need a table, a chair and an outlet for their computer or laptop, irrespective of where this is placed in the library. While others, require a quiet area which is far removed from the hustle and bustle of campus life. It is therefore pertinent to accommodate these varying needs by offering both individual and group study areas located in both social and quiet areas of the library.
