As you know, last month we held a contest to encourage contributions of academic library learning spaces to the FLEXspace collection. Now, we’re happy to announce that the contest winner is Stony Brook University Libraries and their new Central Reading Room!! 
laurasquaresmallThank you to Laura Costello for contributing the space and fleshing out a detailed record! Laura is the Head of Research & Emerging Technologies, and the liaison to the Computer Science and Linguistics departments. She also selects reference materials for the library and provides reference services in person and online. She is actively trying to integrate new and emerging technologies into library service.  You can follow Laura’s conference blog here.
For their winning contribution, one member of the Stony Brook University Libraries team received an all expense paid trip to attend the Designing Libraries for the 21st Century Conference in Calgary. We are proud to have the Stony Brook University Libraries exemplars showcased in the FLEXspace collection and shared with this worldwide community!
