This in-depth workshop explored office space design in a two-part presentation. The first portion, presented by John Blosser, Serials Librarian, Northwestern University, included the theory of office space design, planning use of physical space, ergonomic issues, physical qualities and personal space, and the costs and benefits of changing office space. In the second portion of the workshop, Philenese Slaughter, Serials Librarian, Austin Peay State University, and Allan Scherlen, Government Documents Processing Technician, Appalachian State University, described in detail two case studies of office reorganization in which significant improvements were accomplished with a great deal of planning and limited budgets.
