What Is The Information Commons?

The Information Commons is a grouping of public access workstations that are located at the center and rear of the Library. All are connected to the Internet, and one printer/copier located across from the circulation desk.  In addition, all workstations have word processing and spreadsheet applications.  The Commons is used for individual research and writing.

Since the Commons area and its resources need to be available for multiple purposes, an academic library environment conducive to the pursuit of research and study needs to be maintained.  The Commons cannot be a source of disruption within the Library.  To support this end, groups are not permitted to work together in the Information Commons.  In addition, Faculty cannot expect to conduct a class and/or perform lab type work with their class at the Commons.
