Abstract

The learning commons of Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is a physical space and cultural concept resulting from collaboration between the library and information technology services. Four tenets guided the development of the learning commons: (1) users learn from users; (2) serve the needs of the "Google" learner; (3) craft a tailored resource mix emphasizing electronic resources; and (4) resist organizational insularity.
