Vasche library will become the academic heart of the Stan State Campus. Designed to fulfill CSU’s Graduation Initiative – a mandate to support a students’ graduation in four years – the library is not only adapting to new library models but includes strategic partners within the building to maximize multipurpose uses and synergies.
Within the existing footprint, the library will more than double the number of study seats with seating from collaborative study areas to quiet study carrels. Space has been created by the de-selection of materials and keeping collections in electronic compact browsable shelving. Extensive technology resources, including distributed computers, laptop check out, tech help desk and multimedia group study rooms give students a wide variety of spaces and technologies to meet their needs. As a campus serving many first-generation college students, intuitive and welcoming access to library resources, staff and collections are essential – this is done through organizing all services around a one-stop-shop model.
