||From November 19th-25th 2014, AUX staff conducted observational sampling of space
usage on the second and fourth floors of Perkins library using Suma.2 The goal of
this observation was to understand which types of furniture are most heavily used,
and what types of activities patrons perform while using different types of furniture.
We also hoped to get a general sense of how many people were using the space. Between
two and five observations were conducted each day, Monday through Friday. The majority
of observations (43%) occurred between 1pm-2:59pm. The highest single occupancy rate
was observed between 8pm-8:59pm on Wednesday (124 people).
