Allie Skjerven awarded Patricia Lindell Scholarship!

Posted on November 20th, 2009 by

The History Department is pleased to announce that Allie Skjerven, senior History Major, has been awarded the 2010 Patricia Lindell Scholarship in the GAC library.

This year’s project, to be carried out during Spring Semester 2010, will focus on how undergraduates utilize space in academic libraries.  Several academic libraries, most notably the University of Rochester Libraries, have researched how students use the library’s physical spaces; results have been used to improve services for students. All Allie,  working with Professor Julie Gilbert, will conduct a literature review, design and carry out an ethnographic study exploring the use of space in our library, and write up the results to provide insight into ways the library can better meet the needs of Gustavus students.
