Project 3

The Value of Making Space | Yoav Rabino, Juan Cabrera, Yuxin Xiong | PDF
We examine the square footage cost associated with storing millions of volumes in a desirable location like Van Pelt. The utilization of space and resources for different states of the library is visualized and discussed, exploring  how space, circulation of books, and services are related to cost, paving the way for the future state of the Van Pelt Library.

This is Van Pelt |  Aliza Hochstein, Amaris Kobolak, Jonathan Sadeghi | PDF | Image
This project is an installation visualizing how different libraries have shifted in their utilization of physical space in the past ten years.  Each of the four libraries– Ed Com, Biomed, Van Pelt and the Music Library– are represented by a 100 sq. foot sample showing how the space is used. 

Van Pelt Sleep Pods | Amy Lanza, Yidi Xu, Nadia Kim | PDF | Video Link 
In 2015, only 14% of Penn students reported feeling well-rested from the night before. What if the library functioned as a place of study, wellness, and revitalization? The library stacks are a section of the library that one may argue is on the way out; our project will visualize the positive effect of transforming the library stacks on student productivity.

Optimizing Study Space | Alex Montgomery, Natalie Carstens, Can Wang |Image
This project examines today’s patterns in group size among library visitors and how libraries might allocate space to accommodate such groups. Using information collected from Weigle Information Commons, we visualize the amount of space wasted by sub-optimal layouts while demonstrating the potential benefits of reorganization.

Van Pelt Books in Print—Subjects Over Time | Lauren Glenn, Justin Yim, Ying Luo | Video | PDF
Are printed books on the brink of extinction as we embrace a digital age? What are the books in print about? How do the subjects of print books change over time? For this project we look at Penn Libraries' over three million  books published after the year 1600, dividing them by published year. Among the books published in the same year we categorize them according to Library of Congress Classification. In this visualization we'll see the distribution of books over subjects in each year in the color bar animation; and we'll see how the numbers of books in a certain subject change over time.
