Study carrel -Reader Activity Area of library building -library managenent
Study carrels are exclusive areas, located in quieter and undisturbed part of the library, which are set apart for prolonged use of a research or academic staff. Very often they are located near the reference collection or the bound volumes collection, which are extensively used by the researchers. More generous space allocation has to be made for these study carrels, and preferably they should be insulated against intrusion by others.Most university libraries and some big public libraries provide this facility. Ordinary table size modular study carrels can also be designed and kept along windows in reading room or stacks to provide a sort of semi privacy.
