SHAPIRO LIBRARY

Consistently ranked as one of the top ten academic research libraries in North America, the University of Michigan Library provides an extraordinary array of resources and services to students, faculty, and more in physical locations throughout the university’s campus. As technology impacts the operation and design of libraries, the traditional layout of bookshelf labyrinths must be modified to adapt to changing trends.

BrightTree Studios provided high-level technology designs as the library conducts renovations of their more traditional library spaces to create more student-focused study and collaboration spaces. Through our technology visioning, considerations for student engagement, interactive learning, idea discovery and application, room and technology usage tracking, and a seamless, exceptional user experience were made.
