Libraries play a fundamental role in enhancing the learning experience, providing students with all the materials and services they need to improve their knowledge.
Currently, libraries are offering different services aiming to improve the student experience, including a physical space where learners can find various materials such as books, dictionaries and encyclopedias; an area where students can chill-out and relax by listening to music or reading books; a place where students are able to find international magazines and discover what’s going on worldwide; and independent study areas as well as collaborative learning spaces where students can meet up with other learners to complete group projects.
Not only do students benefit from libraries but also academics. In fact, librarians can work in partnership with lecturers to help them create engaging programmes, adapt curricula and plan learning activities. Also, thanks to the library resources, educators can develop online learning materials and interactive modules for those students who aren’t attending lectures on campus.
