9781843343127: Learning Commons: Evolution and Collaborative Essentials (Chandos Information Professional Series)

This book examines successfully planned and implemented learning commons at several different academic institutions around the world. These case studies provide a methodology for effective planning, implementation and assessment. Practical information is provided on how to collaborate with campus stakeholders, estimate budgeting and staffing and determine the equipment, hardware and software needs. Also provided are memoranda of understandings (MOUs), planning checklists and assessment tools. This book reflects a unifying focus on both the evolution of learning commons to learning spaces and the collaborative aspect of co-creating learning spaces.

  • Unique case studies representing very different types of Information Commons, Learning Commons, Faculty Commons and other Learning Spaces
  • International breadth and depth is assured through inclusion of case studies from Canadian, New Zealand, Australian and European institutions in addition to six in the United States
  • Practical checklists of planning and implantation considerations, as well as memorandum of understanding (MOU) templates, form the appendices
