Favorite Commons Photos

In no particular order, here are some photos that, to my eye, best convey the Commons experience.

Indiana U., Wells Library. Collaborative, active learning. Unposed. Love the open book next to the computer.

U. of Arizona, Information Commons. Informal, collaborative. Bi-level. Glass wall for group study. Mature white-haired guy in center, working quietly in the midst.

U.N.C. Asheville, Collaborative Learning Commons
Large monitor for group work, print materials nearby.

Daemen College, Research and Information Commons
3-story atrium, variety of work spaces, video wall, books on far perimeter, red chairs for accent.

Queen's U. Ontario, Learning Commons
One of the first things you do in a Commons is have a party. Invite the suits.
