Spatial@UCSB, as part of its regular lunch time series, ThinkSpatial, will be hosting a research presentation by MIL's director Jon Jablonski. As part of a 2011 Fulbright exchange to the Wuhan University School of Information Management (武汉大学信息管理学院), Jablonski surveyed Chinese students to determine if libraries were an important part of the campus landscape.
The presentation is Tuesday, May 8 at 12:00pm in Ellison Hall room 5824.
The experiment asked students at various gathering spots to draw a map of the Wuhan campus. Almost 300 individual locations were identified on the resulting 'sketch maps.' The places were then classified and ranked by their functions.
