Understanding Hunt Library and its Digital Presence
I have visited Hunt Library many times since my arrival at CMU. It is, for the most part, a great place to get work done and concentrate. However, it has many frustrating features. The entrance into the library is one of the most frustrating aspects of the space. The doors are incredibly hard to open and, though they advertise themselves as push doors, they really function poorly both ways. If you have never been in the space before, it might be hard to understand exactly where everything is.
In my project I tried to explain how the library is currently laid out, why the digital interface or lack thereof doesn’t coexist with the actual physical space, and how to adjust both so that the spaces make more sense together and separately. I think I do a pretty good job of explaining how each space works, however I am still unsure of how to cleanly and professionally express my ideas. I’m also having a hard time seeing where I can go next with this project.
