Introducing Illini Spaces
Are you scrambling to find a comfortable place to study on Reading Day?
Look no further than IlliniSpaces, a new app developed by Technology Services and the University Library. Students are able to find and preview over 100 campus spaces, all from their desktops, tablets, or phones.
In the week leading up to finals, IlliniSpaces already has over 6,500 visitors who have viewed the app more than 8,000 times.
IlliniSpaces is an easy to use, mobile-friendly website to help students find study rooms, conference rooms, and computer labs on campus. Each space includes a map with its location on campus, and most spaces include photographs of the location.
Using filters built into IlliniSpaces, students can sort spaces by whether or not food and drinks are allowed, if printers and computers are available, and the number of available seats. IlliniSpaces can even be configured to only display spaces that are currently open.
The Illinois community is proud to work together to provide an application that serves student needs for efficiency and flexibility. As Merinda Hensley, Assistant Professor, Instructional Services Librarian and Co-Coordinator of the Scholarly Commons, notes: “The Library as a place to study, do research, and connect with peers is an essential part of our mission to the campus and we’re really excited to co-sponsor this new app to help students find the perfect place for their needs.”
