Abstract

As a joint research project between Monash University and a partner organisation, the Victorian Association of TAFE Libraries (VATL), the study reported in this paper investigated challenges which face TAFE libraries. To assess the suitability of the Learning Commons concept, interviews, questionnaire surveys, and a conference dialogue between library managers were used. Important themes emerged and were evaluated. The paper explores significant findings from two surveys which show how TAFE libraries have changed as places and digital spaces.
