The findings indicate that there is increased mobilty among many students. This is evidenced by the following:
'A lot of times, ... I'm on the train fairly often... it's easy for me to ... throw the things that I need to read into my bag and do that.'
'I love to get books from the library to go and read on the bus. I feel like I'm very productive on the bus.'
1. Recognise that students expect the following from shared and collaborative spaces:
2. Standardise service provision across all stakeholders within an institution in order to ensure familiarity with systems across all contexts, e.g. IT, Library, Academic Writing Centre, etc.
3. Ensure agreements are in place to enable students to use other libraries (either for ease of access or because of subject relevance) via collaborative schemes and to communicate these agreements so that these are understood and widely used.
'...if it is [a]... clear day and I have time I like to go outside but if I... do writing ...I prefer my room and using [my] PC ....'
