We have a Learning Commons that is meant for use by all faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students depending on
what they need the space for or what they intend to do. We do not limit learning spaces by status or discipline.
We have a “Scholarly Commons” that primarily targets faculty and graduate students but is not restricted to them. Our
separate Undergraduate Library is conceived as a learning commons. We have a number of branch subject libraries,
many located physically within academic departments and thus primarily serving particular disciplines, but by policy
open to all users and not “restricted.”
We have a space available for short-term projects (5–8 weeks) by faculty, especially designed for rapid prototyping.
Some of the spaces described above are utilized or reserved for Digital Humanities research or teaching at certain times.
Also, we are building an incubator/accelerator space within the Management Library. This will be for projects whose
teams are greenlighted to work in the space for set periods of time. We are contemplating a bigger undergraduate
collaboration space, which would be open space with some technology enhancements.
We have a Skype room, commuter lounge, Math Emporium, Writing Commons, and math and science tutoring spaces.
