Group study rooms are among the busiest areas in 21st century libraries. At the college and university level, students will often reserve these rooms days in advance in order to spend an hour or two collaborating with members of their project teams.
In public libraries, local businesses and students are meeting in these rooms due to the lack of collaboration space elsewhere in the community. As the need for these meeting spaces continues to grow, so too does the sophistication of the laptops and mobile devices that library patrons come armed with.
Several library furniture manufacturers have taken notice of this trend and are providing a combination of furniture and technology solutions. Almost every group study room has a large television screen in the room to assist with projection. Our manufacturers are now providing collaboration tables with cutouts in the center of the work surface that can accommodate a myriad of electrical, data and A/V components. This equipment allows a student or library patron to quickly and easily project content from their laptop or mobile device to the television screen.
Here are just a few examples of collaboration tables that are available from library furniture manufacturers.
