The (Nearly) Perfect Training Room...Klaus U. Werner
Library space, where librarians teach information literacy, should not look like an old-fashioned classroom or a computerized training room which might be found in a computer centre. In a traditional information technology training room or a computer laboratory. The furniture and its arrangement convey messages to occupants: don’t move, don’t discuss, don’t feel comfortable! Tables are usually placed in rows. There are rarely windows that allow views of the outside world. The computers dominate. There might be some digitized displays – but there is limited space for the learners. The students using the facility will become tired very quickly.
