Phase Two (completion date: November, 2010) will integrate tutoring and the Writing Center into the John Peace Library Information Commons:
New spaces on the library's second floor for the Tomas Rivera Center (supplemental instruction and tutoring units) and the Writing Center will create a one-stop shop for student intellectual engagement and support.
An expansion of the Information Commons will integrate an additional 50 computers. Ten new instruction rooms also will be constructed.
By popular demand, a new quiet study room will be constructed in the northwest corner of the second floor.
This blog serves as a directory to library websites (234 as of 4/10/14) where you can find models of the innovation that started as the information commons and has evolved into the learrning commons, knowledge commons and many variations.
Scroll down for links to planning documents, conference presentations, online articles and other blogs that might be useful.
I'll also be posting on other matters that point the way to innovations and interesting ideas on how libraries can improve the learning environment.
