'In most of the other academic libraries that are undergoing major renovations, it's more of an open, noisy, interactive space.
But what we hear from the students is that they need more quiet space.
So we decided to give them some open space where we could talk, interact and collaborate, but 75 of our seats were in a quiet place.
In these reading rooms, we have computers and separate seats with separate work lights.
This includes a 31-foot-by-six-foot multi-
