A paper by Kari Kozak, head of the Lichtenberger Engineering Library, has been published on the unique Creative Space in the Seamans Center for the Engineering Arts and Sciences in Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship.
In collaboration with the UI College of Engineering, the Lichtenberger Engineering Library opened a Creative Space in Fall 2016 on the second floor of the Seamans Center (2001C). The renovated room in the library includes tinkering stations featuring different technologies and tools, as well as collaborative work areas with white boards and computer monitors that can split into as many as four independent screens.
Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship publishes substantive content of interest to science and technology librarians. It serves as a vehicle for sci-tech librarians to share successful initiatives and innovative ideas, and to publish peer-reviewed or board-accepted papers, including case studies, practical applications, theoretical essays, web/bibliographies, and research papers relevant to the functions and operations of science and technology libraries in all settings. Through its columns ISTL also publishes reviews, opinions, and best practices.
