A Neighborhood Analysis (Week 2)

How do the researchers define neighborhoods?

It's defined as a geographical or spatial entity with boundaries. A library is only really useful to a community if it successfully accounts for the different aspects of the community, like the ratio of demographics, how accessible it is based on not only proximity, but also making sure to account for the "invisible barriers" at play. The article discusses that the most important aspect of a neighborhood is the social interactions or communication. Neighborhoods have identities therefore that libraries need to recognize and act accordingly.
