Hello List Members,
I'm conducting research for a proposed writing centre at Lakehead University
and am eager to hear from writing centre professionals who have info/ideas
about the optimal spatial layout for writing centres. It's a topic that
doesn't come up a lot in the literature.
The writing centre at Lakehead will be located on the first floor of the
main library, possibly (probably) within a Learning Commons (that option is
currently being studied). Enrolment at Lakehead is close to 7000.
I'll be considering everything from optimal square footage, floorplan, room
shape, types and shape of tables, relationship to larger spaces (such as a
learning commons), and anything else that seems relevant.
Scholarly leads on the topic are most welcome too.
Many thanks in advance.
