The purpose of this study is to enhance the efficiency of library space usage through analyzing users` behavior in an academic library. Diary methodology was applied for collecting users` activities in the library. 108 students participated in this study, but 84 students submitted their diaries. Among them, 14 participants were interviewed to identify barriers and their needs in using the library. The findings suggest rearranging IT devices to increase use rate of those devices, making plans for reusing the space where it is rarely used, and improving the accessibility of information through browsing in the bookstack area. Additionally, time analysis of users` activities was used to analyze students` behavior in the library.
