Polishing the Dimond: changing spaces for enhanced services to the UNH community
University Library Scholarship
  • Louise Buckley, University of New Hampshire
  • Eleta Exline, University of New Hampshire - Main Campus
In 2007 the UNH Library orchestrated several space redesign projects to enable new services and functions within the Library and adapt to changing academic support needs. These projects included the creation of a digital imaging lab in an unused preservation workroom, and the redesign of the Government Documents Department office to accommodate the transfer of its public service desk to the IT Support Center of the new Dimond Academic Commons. Creativity and flexibility by all participants as well as a shared goal of providing the best possible service to students, faculty, and staff helped meet challenges such as tight deadlines, coordination and communication of information among several units, loss of physical space, and a need for extensive infrastructure work.
