Old Dominion U. Seeking Learning Commons Manager

The Norfolk, VA institution seems to be doing it right.  Early in the planning for an expansion of Perry Library, the learning commons concept was developed, tested and marketed through a series of campus presentations, forums and surveys.  A Learning Commons Governance Team was formed in 2009 made up of representatives from University Libraries, Computing Services and University College, which will staff the Student Success Center in the new building.  ODU is advertising for Learning Commons Manager to oversee "the daily operations, services and staffing" of the LC.   You can follow the Wiki that documents the progress of the project, or read the fairly detailed press release from April, 2010.  Projected completion date is October, 2011.
