Libraries count the number of reference questions, book checkouts, online resources use, and much more. Yet, when it comes to gathering ongoing data about user interactions with our physical spaces there is generally only one data point: gate counts. This paper will examine how to build a robust, sustainable, and repeatable three-year assessment plan around space, with examples from our own experience.
