eBooks, Not Tree Books: Upgrading and Diversifying Library Spaces & Service

Posted on 27 June 2017
In a bid to enhance the teaching and learning experience beyond the campus, the University of South Australia (UniSA) has undertaken a huge transformation of their library spaces and services.

As part of this transformation, the university's four libraries have culled book collections and transferred to digital formats, with the reclaimed space modernised, and services diversified to enhance the teaching experience for both staff and students alike.

In a recent interview with Diana Hodge, Manager of Academic Library Services at UniSA, she discusses:

  • Aligning Library Services with Broader University Objectives
  • Creating Flexible Spaces to Enhance the Learning Experience
  • Upskilling Staff & Rethinking the Role of the Librarian

"Having reduced our physical collection by over 80,000 books and shifted our collection to eBooks has allowed us to repurpose that space in way that is more appealing to the modern student experience."
