Slide 14

Center for Aquaculture and Seafood Development On the left line are crisp water tanks and on the left are salt-water

Slide 15

Center for Aquaculture and Seafood Development Salt water tanks – block is holding down a bushel to keep ocean cucumbers from sticking to filtration framework. In foundation is a hatchery for developing green growth for food.

Slide 16

Flume Tank at Marine Institute The test segment is 8m wide x 4m profound x 22.25m long (the water level might be changed from 4m to 3m profundity). These measurements make the tank the biggest flume tank of its sort on the planet.

Slide 18

The Dr. C.R. Barrett Library accumulation at Marine Institute underpins study and research in fisheries and aquaculture, marine innovations, nautical science and the sea environment. The accumulation likewise incorporates critical possessions in building.

Slide 19

As a component of Memorial University of Newfoundland, the library has entry through intercampus advances to an expansive gathering in the primary grounds library : the Queen Elizabeth II library and in addition different branches libraries of Memorial University. As a branch of the Memorial University Library framework, our possessions are listed in Memorial University\'s Integrated Library System

Slide 20

The Challenge: A projection of what library prerequisites will be in the event that we are to accomplish our objectives for the year 2020

Slide 21

"This [is] a chance to dream with a sensible desire that your fantasy may get to be reality."

Slide 22

"The Dream...!"

Slide 23

Focus on requirements as opposed to the compartment

Slide 24

When confronted with an expansive task my methodology has dependably been to convey the inquiry down to its most straightforward components: anticipated client populace anticipated physical accumulation anticipated staffing venture innovation

Slide 25

Current Collection ~ 60,000 monographs ~400+ Journal titles (print) – vast extent of exchange diaries ~ 1200+ VHS gathering with a movement to DVD 400 boats outlines 100+ maps retired in bookstacks and reference

Slide 26

Current library space: Group study area 28 situates Small gathering study room 6 seats Information Commons 13 seats Public access computers 7 seats Study carrels 37 seats AV viewing 3 seats Armchairs 2 seats Total seating area 96 seats

Slide 27

Library seating suggestions : Should situate for 20%-25% of understudies (Leighton & Weber, 2000) Current understudy populace: 2000 There ought to be 400 seats! Library right now has 96 seats.

Slide 31

Conflicting data: Carlson, S. (2001). The forsook library. Annal of Higher Education, 49 (12), 35. "...more understudies are entering libraries not through entryways but rather through telephone lines and fiber-optic links."

Slide 32

Albanese, A. R. (2003). Left no more. Library Journal, 128 (7), 34. Refers to an adjustment in library utilization measurements "In the event that you need understudies to utilize your library… you need to offer them all that they require." "Post-web ricochet"

Slide 33

Buschman, J., & Leckie, G. J. (2007). The library as spot : History, people group, and culture . Westport, Conn: Libraries Unlimited. Creators directed a study in 2004 to study library utilization designs by "more established researchers" versus "more youthful researchers."

Slide 34

"More youthful researchers" will probably do the accompanying: Work at a library table Spend time in thought at the library Take a folder case or rucksack to the library Take individual books or library books to the library Take nourishment or beverage to the library Make continuous library visits (3 times each month or more) Make long library visits (one hour or more) Use a study carrel Use bunch study rooms Make "space-just" visits to the library (i.e., visit the library for reasons other than utilizing library materials or innovation)

Slide 36

Estabrook, L., Witt, E., & Raini e , L. (2007). Seat web and American life venture: Information seeks that take care of issues . Urbana, Ill.: Graduate School of Library and Information Science - University of Illnois at Urbana-Champaign . "Libraries address uncommon issues. Youthful grown-ups in Generation Y (age 18-29) are the heaviest clients of libraries when they confront these issues. They are likewise the no doubt library guests for any reason. A large portion of the individuals who visit libraries to look for critical thinking data are exceptionally fulfilled by what they find and they value the assets accessible there, particularly access to PCs and the web."

Slide 37

Freeman, G. T. (2005). The library as spot: Changes in learning designs, accumulations, innovation, and use. In Council on Library and Information Resources, Library as spot: Rethinking parts, reevaluating space (pp. 1). Washington, D.C.: Council on Library and Information Resources. "In the event that Faculty, Scholars and understudies can now get data in any configuration and access it anyplace on grounds, then why does the library, as a physical spot, assume such a critical part in the restoration and progression of a foundation\'s scholarly life?"

Slide 38

"The library is the main unified area where new innovations can be joined with conventional information assets in a client centered, administration rich environment that backings today\'s social and instructive examples of learning, educating and research."

Slide 40

Projected Student Population Overall assessment of understudy populace for MI and College of the North Atlantic – Engineering Technolgy Center in 2020 is 2500 understudies Does exclude workforce, staff, or outer clients New library ought to give 500-625 seats More five times the ebb and flow limit

Slide 41

Proposed seating needs: Comfortable seating – 50 seats Group study rooms (10x6 seats) – 60 seats Group study tables – 150 seats Chart room – 30 seats Individual study territories: Lockable rooms – 40 seats Carrels – 60 Open study ranges – 40 seats

Slide 42

Projected Technology Needs We can\'t anticipate what kind of innovation will be utilized as a part of 2020 however we can be sure that it will require power. In this manner guarantee that all seating in library has admittance to an electrical outlet. Use development systems and foundation that are versatile to reconfiguration

Slide 43

Technology & Public Access Workstations Public access terminals - to 20 seats Information house - to 30 seats Electronic classroom – saved for library guideline for early term and accessible for staff preparing in late term. Likewise utilized for data center – 20 seats

Slide 44

Projected Physical Collection Assume 1000 acquisitions for each year (in light of yearly measurements) 15 years = 15000 acquisitions at 1" per thing 556 racks 93 more sounds

Slide 45

Projected Staffing Needs Currently 6 FT staff and 1 curator Anticipate requirement for 2 nd bookkeeper Need 8 workplaces

Slide 47

Circulation Desk Ergonomically intended for effectiveness Workspace for 2 staff Locked cupboards for electronic things, for example, GPS units and portable workstations that we flow 8 straights of racking for store things

Slide 48

The Marine Institute is arranged on a slope sitting above St. John\'s. The perspective from this point of view is unparalleled. The new library would be a show-stopper for Marine Institute. In the event that very much planned and built, it would be a sure stop for guests to Marine Institute including potential understudies and customers.
