Anita Kumari Meena

This research investigates the intricate dynamics of library space utilization through a comprehensive analysis of user preferences and facility design. Drawing on diverse sources, including national surveys, architectural reviews, and academic studies, the study employs both quantitative and qualitative methods. Findings reveal a growing preference for technologically advanced spaces, with a 72% inclination among surveyed students. Library floor plans exhibit a notable shift toward flexible layouts, showcasing a 25% increase in open floor plans. Case studies from institutions like MIT and UC Berkeley underscore the adaptability and innovation required in contemporary library spaces. Challenges, such as budget constraints, are evident, but opportunities arise from the rise of flexible work arrangements. The research contributes evidence-based insights and practical recommendations for optimizing library spaces to foster enhanced learning environments.
