Ball State University Libraries Awarded LSTA Grant for Equipment to Enhance Student Learning

Dean of University Libraries, Dr. Arthur W. Hafner, reported that the Indiana State Library awarded a $2,000 grant to the University Libraries to increase the effectiveness of Bracken’s group study and meeting rooms. One example of the enhancement is a mobile whiteboard for students and/or faculty who are working on group projects and presentations, for small-scale tutoring including special needs students, for graduate students in seminars, for BSU-affiliated meetings, and for selected high school students.

Bracken group study rooms are multi-functional facilities, available by reservation to students and faculty and on a drop-in basis to all library users whenever Bracken is open. These rooms are heavily used, being reserved an average of 38 times a day. They are also used spontaneously by students at other times.
