Faculty Senate debates proposed library transformation, finds a service solution

“A disagreement between seating space and book space in Mary Couts Burnett Library [at Texas Christian University] surfaced at the Faculty Senate meeting on Thursday. Jean Koelker, dean of the library, presented a PowerPoint to Senate members outlining the future transformation of the library, called The Library of Tomorrow.

Koelker said at least one million of the 1.4 million books in the library will be taken out to provide more seating for students. “One of the biggest problems with the library is that it is out of book space,” Koelker said. “To make room for books, we have to make less and less seating and that isn’t working.”
