Salve Regina Library Makes Room for Makerspace

Salve Regina University is located in the center of Bellevue Avenue Historic District of Newport, Rhode Island. An accredited university since 1995, Salve Regina offers a wide range of academic studies to over 2,500 students a year. Within the past five years, Salve Regina, like many other universities, has started to repurpose the library space. The rise of e-books, technology and the need for collaborative spaces has lead to the demand for more open and creative working areas within public and academic libraries.
