Dear all,

We have just begun our discussions regarding remodeling our building to create a learning commons that combines the library with the math, writing, and science centers, as well as peer tutoring. I would be very interested in thoughts other have regarding this question. I am already beginning to see where having the tutoring center housed within the library would cause some concerns regarding the noise level in the area, and am trying to figure out the best model for handling this.

Thanks!

Juan

Hello Barbara,
We have a Center for Learning Excellence housed in our Education building and are currently making the move to our library to combine our academic support services into a Learning commons located in the center of campus.  I would like to also hear from others regarding their experience with learning centers in Libraries.

Thanks!

Subject: Learning Center question

The University Tutorial Center at NC State University is currently investigating moving to a learning center housed in the main library. Our administration is interested to know what other institutions have a learning center, particularly ones housed in libraries.  We appreciate knowing how the model is working for others.

Thanks,
Barbie Windom
