"Proof of Concept" Used for Academic Commons at Emory U.'s Oxford College

Emory University's original campus was in the village of Oxford, Georgia, east of Atlanta. It is now home to Emory's Oxford College, a two-year, liberal arts program with an emphasis on collaborative learning and team projects. As the college developed plans to expand and renovate a 40 year-old library, Kitty McNeill, College Librarian, and Stephen Bowen, Dean of the College, used "proof of concept" or prototyping to introduce stakeholders and potential donors to what the new Library Academic Commons would become. By renovating a portion of the existing building as a learning commons, the college community now has "a working model of the learning environment that will be at the heart of the new Library Academic Commons."
