possible classroom observations and artifact examination. This research will be cocreated by the researcher and 3-8 student participants. Using an iterative process of
aural description of experience and writing, common themes will be identified, and
the essence of the lived experience of SDI will be expressed in a single written piece.
The pilot study elicited four common themes of experience between two participants:
joy in study immersion; appreciation for autonomy; satisfaction with self-selected
topic; and enthusiasm for learning.
The student perspective of the lived experience of SDI will add an important new
voice to the growing conversation on K-12 inquiry learning models. I anticipate this
work will be informative for both scholars and educators. The illumination of the
affective outcomes of the student experience of SDI will likely suggest lines of
inquiry for further scholarly research and curriculum development.

Exploring Visual Representations of the University Library through


a Photo Contest
Somsak Sriborisutsakul
Department of Library Science Faculty of Arts, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand

Abstract: Users photos taken in a library building can be symbols illustrating their
inner perceptions of the academic library as a place and its services. These photos can
also enable the library to understand first-hand experience of the photographers or
user insights, beyond those offered by other mainstream techniques of data collection.
By applying qualitative content analysis, this paper aims to reflect on how the photos,
which were originally submitted to a contest as part of the Thai university librarys
marketing campaign to promote its brand, can be valuable representations of the
library that the photographers have actually interact with. This kind of visual
methodologies has potential for being used to supplement library managers efforts to
discover real user needs that shape both service design and marketing in the library
context.
Keywords: Library photos, User perception, Qualitative content analysis, Visual
methodologies, Service design

An Exploratory Study of Seed Libraries in the United States


Wilhelm Peekhaus
Assistant Professor, School of Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee., USA

Abstract: Seed libraries are a relatively new phenomenon in the public library world.
Most of the work on seed libraries is confined to the professional literature. In fact,
there has been no sustained empirical research on this topic published in the extant
peer-reviewed literature. The main purpose of this exploratory study is to respond to
this gap by providing systematic, evidence-based research about seed libraries
contained in public libraries.
This study investigates seed libraries that have been established in various public
library branches throughout the United States. The study seeks to understand why
such libraries have been created, the processes and resources required for their
establishment, how they function, what populations they serve, whether they partner
