Samenvatting

This paper focuses on the changes in education and their implication for the university
library. The impact of Avans's strategic educational vision on the design and
lay-out of the buildings. Especially Xplora, the Learning Centre of Avans, will be
described.
The three locations of the Avans Learning Centre (opened up in 2006 and 2007) comprise
a total of 2,000 student workplaces. The traditional library has changed into a
multimedia learning centre and now resides under the Avans's Learning and Innovation
Centre.
New buildings and a new organisational structure demand new working arrangements
with faculty staff. The transformation from library to learning centre and especially
the consequences for library staff will be focussed upon. All staff were offered a
comprehensive training programme. In addition, information specialists were trained
to improve their acquaintance with educational knowledge. The benefits derived from
the cooperation between library staff and colleagues from other disciplines (e.g. educational
consultants, e-learning consultants, multimedia staff etc.) within the Avans
Learning and Innovation Centre will be described. The results of relevant student surveys
will also be described. At the end some conclusions will be drawn based on four
years of working with new buildings, new educational models, a new organisation,
new working arrangements, etc.
