- The compatibility between the dimensions of furniture and users’ body is crucial in keeping the users’ performance. The objective of this study is to identify whether the furniture dimensions in the library reading area at University of Trunojoyo Madura (UTM) are appropriate/inappropriate to the students’ anthropometry and to find a recommendation for appropriate dimensions for designing library furniture. The current study was begun by measuring the furniture dimensions and the students’ anthropometry. The evaluation was done by following methods adapted from previous studies that determine the furniture dimensions based on the anthropometric and ergonomic principles. The compatibility criterion was determined by considering the relationship between the furniture dimensions, the students' anthropometry and assumption(s) regarding what they wear and their behaviors during they are in the reading area. The finding of this study showed the mismatch between the students’ anthropometry participated in the measurements and the furniture dimensions. Another important finding was that this study provided/offered a recommendation that was suitable dimensions for designing library furniture at UTM
