Norlin Faculty Study
The Norlin Faculty Study is located in Norlin E206 on the second floor of Norlin Library, on the north side adjacent to the Research and Instruction area. It is a quiet place for faculty engaged in research and needing library materials. All of the workspace in the area is shared.
Applications are now being accepted. The space will be assigned and monitored by the Associate Dean for Collections and Services.
Please be aware that faculty members assigned to the Study may be asked to participate in surveys, focus groups, or interviews related to the design and use of the space. The furnishings in the Study were provided to the Libraries at a deep discount due to our participation in the Learning Studio Program. We appreciate Herman Miller's support of the University Libraries.
The Study -- opened October 1, 2011 -- was created in part through the Herman Miller Learning Spaces Research Program. Herman Miller, a leading manufacturer of corporate furniture, has offered this collaboration to several campuses around the country to measure the impact of holistic changes to learning and research spaces. Herman Miller assisted with the design of the space and, along with Libraries faculty, will be conducting research to help us design more effective learning spaces for the future.
