Information and Learning Commons at universities provide learning and collaborative spaces as well as information service and technical assistance to foster individual learning and group collaboration. This conference will share experiences about IC/LC, review partnerships between the library and other campus units, and examine their evolving roles and impact on academic learning and intellectual inquiry. It will also explore and identify best operational approaches and assessment practices to enhance the role of information and learning commons in advancing learning and collaboration on campus.
