UPDATE Brody Learning Commons at Johns Hopkins U.

"The newest of the Sheridan Libraries, the Brody Learning Commons opened in August 2012. Connected to the Eisenhower Library on all floors, the Commons is open 24/7 and features a large quiet reading room, 16 group study rooms, teaching and seminar rooms, and a cafĂ©. The Commons is also home to the Department of Special Collections and the Department of Conservation and Preservation." 

Named for a former JHU president, Brody Learning Commons will open in July 2012 as an extension to the Milton S. Eisenhower Library. Designed by Sheply, Bullfinch, Richardson and Abbott to LEED silver certification, it will feature group study rooms, smart technology classrooms, atrium and cafe. The Rare Books and Conservation/Preservation departments will also get new research facilities and conservation labs.
