Abstract: Students come to the library to conduct intentional or self-regulated learning. How do the spaces they use for learning activities support their learning? A study was conducted in early 2016 where students were interviewed regarding their perception of the spaces that they use in relation to the learning activities they needed to undertake. The goal of the study was to determine the features in open learning spaces that assist students in their learning. This presentation reviews the design of the particular academic library in the study, presents an overview of the research and discusses preliminary results.
