Think Bricks and Mortar Don't Matter? Usage of Library Resources During Our Year of Renovation

We began to plan for the closure of our library for a year-long renovation by adding significantly to our e-book holdings, and switching many print journals to e-only. All public services were moved to another building; classrooms and remote study areas were set up in other buildings; and overnight material pulls from the library were set up. We will show how acquisitions, reference, circulation, and database usage were affected by the renovation. What we expected and what we discovered were two very different things.
