Plans have been completed to begin construction soon after final’s week of a state of the art Learning Commons on the second floor of the UMD Library. The Learning Commons, a dedicated space for integrated campus services that support student learning, will open in August 2013.
The Learning Commons is the result of a study and recommendations from a task force consisting of Library and ITSS staff. Those recommendations, made in 2007, envisioned a one-stop student center for studying, academic support, information technology, and library reference services.
The campus community will be invited to an open house in the Learning Commons fall semester 2013.
