State of the Learning Commons

We're just a little crazy around here!

As student athletes, musicians, guides, and new students start trickling onto campus, Reeves Hall is unfortunately still in some disarray. The good news is that the staff of the various departments are still reachable by phone and/or email, and we are even more or less moved into the Learning Commons space!

The Solution Center is up and running on the upper level of Reeves, and the Career & Professional Development Center, the Writing Center, and the Center for Innovative Teaching are partially moved in.
The Solution Center is ready to go...

The Career & Professional Development Center looks pretty together, too!

The library staff (except for Dr. Stanley, who has already been moved upstairs-- pop into his new office and say hi!) will be moving next week, but at the moment are still located in The Reading Room. 

There are even comfortable chairs for you to sit in when you visit Dr. Stanley on the main level!

Almost all of the library materials are available; the books and print periodicals are in their permanent locations and are no trouble to access. DVDs are a little tougher, but we can make it happen if you ask! The children's room items are still in storage, but we hope to have them moved in shortly (we're just waiting on shelves).

Furniture is trickling in-- I'm watching a few pieces for the O'Hara room come in as I type! It's an exciting, if chaotic, time, and we're excited to share these new learning spaces with you!

The O'Hara room is becoming a more amenable place to study...

I think I speak for all of the library staff when I say that we can't wait for our furniture to arrive so we can move back upstairs to our permanent office location!

As a side note, we had originally planned to be closed this Saturday, as we have been throughout the summer, but will instead be open 9:00-1:00, along with the Solution Center. We'll be starting our fall operating schedule next week.
