The Knowledge Commons facility in the Pattee Library has been in the works for quite some time. It was created by doing a massive renovation to a room on the first floor that used to have quite a few books, a computer lab, and several group meeting spaces. The new facility is technology-infused from end to end. It has individual standing and sitting computer stations, casual seating for laptop use, glass-enclosed group meeting rooms, studios for audio and video, a Media Scape room for small group instruction, a podium-less classroom, and a green wall (plants for air quality and aesthetic appeal). In addition to all of this, there are plenty of staff nearby that can help with library, technology, and media needs.
Words can’t really describe the feel of the space when all of this comes together, so the last time I went, I made some panoramas with my phone:
The interactive map is also helpful in seeing what is available and how it all fits together.
