The needs of inner-city community college students are widely varied. Community College of Philadelphia's (CCP) primary function is to provide them with tools and assistance to help them succeed, which is also the purpose of its newly-renovated library. Today's library is no longer just a book repository, but also an important communal hub for students. The transformation of CCP's library will aid a diverse student body with learning, tutoring, research, and social spaces. We'll share new ways for your institution's library to address these student needs and provide them with the best educational and social resources.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Outline strategies for active, collaborative, and focused learning and find ways for your library to aid students in their education.
  2. Identify the issues that a diverse student body may face in their daily lives and find methods that will help them achieve educational success.
  3. Evaluate planning standards for your institution's library to determine which may be outdated and develop new ideas for transforming library space.
  4. Evaluate your library's current resources, including book stacks, types of learning and study spaces, library staff spaces, and stations for seeking and finding information.
