Abstract

From November 12th to December 12th the Assessment & User Experience (AUX) department staff and student workers conducted headcounts several times per day Monday through Friday2 in the Graduate Reading Room on the second floor of Perkins Library. The goal of this short observational study was to better understand usage patterns and volume in the space. The number of observations on a given day ranged from 1-7, with 88 total observations collected. The majority of observations were taken between 10am and 5pm due due to AUX staff availability; Research and Instructional Services and Access and Delivery Services staff members Stephanie Ford and Seth McCurdy recorded a number of evening observations in the hours of 6-6:59pm and 10-10:59pm. This report does not provide information on use of the graduate reading room on the weekend or from 7pm-9:59pm and 11pm-7:59am. AUX made efforts to have at least one morning observation and one afternoon observation in a given day.
