As Information Professionals, we live in the age of digital information. Recent studies have shown that there is a drastic change in user demands needed to support the teaching, learning, and research activities of the library profession. The desire for physical library collections is in decline.
Even though there is high demand for internet access and allied resources, there are certain user categories like traditional resources and demand for the physical space in the library. In such conditions, libraries may reconsider their current spaces and future renovations to reflect these usage trends to meet the changing requirements of the user community.
