PDA Series: Improving Student Parent Learning through Design of a Family Study Room

PDA Series: Improving Student Parent Learning through Design of a Family Study Room Online

Session Details:

Student parents are an often-overlooked group in library services; however, they are a growing part of the student population, especially in the community college setting. Libraries have a unique opportunity to provide amenities to support student parents and make a difference not just in the success of the parent, but in the life of their child. This data-rich presentation covers design, implementation, and the vision behind Tallahassee Community College Library's family study room, as well as overviews existing student parent data, space usage, and satisfaction. The presentation will include suggestions for libraries on a budget and an overview of existing amenities for student parents in the library.


Sila Lott: Director of Library Services, and previous Faculty Librarian at Tallahassee Community College. Sila has a Master's in Library Science and is currently pursuing a Ph.D in Instructional Design at Florida State University. Sila is skilled in information literacy, instruction, online learning, embedded librarianship, and reference services. Sila is data-driven and leads with strategic planning, and user-centered design.
