Measuring the Success of a 21st Century Center for Learning
Thursday, May 7
3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Learn from architects and a library director how Anne Arundel Community College conducted a post occupancy building assessment 18 months after opening a new library in August 2012. The new library, which focuses on student success, won industry awards and was featured on the covers of two magazines. But how does the building perform against the project goals? This session will analyze data and information gathered in the assessment. All types of libraries can use the same techniques to measure the success of new or renovated facilities.
This program is worth 1 contact hour of continuing education.
