Microsoft PowerPoint - 05-24-2013_library impact report [Rea - page 5

We listen and respond
to the evolving needs of our most important 
constituency—the students of OSU. When the Valley Library needed a new 
online reservation system to easily book study rooms, we had a unique 
opportunity.  We could meet the needs of students and engage a library student 
worker in applying his academic training to develop the new system. 
Steve Hill
, a 
senior computer science major, accepted the challenge.  The result was a win‐win 
situation. The use of study rooms has tripled at the Valley Library because they 
are easier to reserve. Since spring 2013, new kiosks are allowing students to 
check the rooms out by themselves. Steve described the impact on his course of 
study, "The stuff I learned this summer was really great, and I've been applying it 
everywhere."
