Abstract

This article outlines the development, and describes each component, of the original information commons at Kent State University's main library. The addition of services and facilities that transitioned the library to a learning commons over the ensuing six years, as well as the impact of the learning commons service philosophy on everything from the library's instructional program to locally-developed research tools, is also discussed.
