Main Library Humanities Hub Team
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Present: Sarah Shreeves, Mark Wardecker, Harriett Green, Marek Sroka, J. P Mathy, Dianne Harris, Kirk Sanders, Sue Searing, John Wagstaff. Jeff Schrader in attendance.
The subject of the meeting was library spaces. Jeff Schrader supplied the following figures, and showed floor plans, for the following spaces:
In addition to basic matters of space, we also need to consider:
It was noted, in connection with provision of shelving, that a gap of 42” between shelves is currently the code requirement.
Dianne asked whether mobile shelving could be used in, say, 220. Jeff advised that the floors in Main Library aren’t really designed for that kind of load.
Kirk asked how much space – given the code requirements for spacing between shelves – would be required to relocate the current Classics collections.
The Team then visited rooms 220, 200, and the Classics Library with Jeff.
John is to invite Tom Teper to the Team’s meeting on October 17 to discuss Stacks and other relevant issues. We will begin the meeting by talking about Scholarly Commons and Digital Humanities issues.
