I linked the photo above using Flickr’s nifty, “Blog This,” feature.  Visit Flickr to see more photos of the two Learning Commons at Georgia Tech.  (Click the “View as slideshow” link.)

To examine other Learning Commons in academic settings visit The Learning Commons Model.  As part of her sabbatical project, Professor Susan McMullen, a librarian at Roger Williams University, investigated “a sampling of institutions that have had more than two years of experience” with the “blended service environment” of the Learning Commons model. 

Her site-reports for 18 Learning Commons include photos, descriptions of facilities and services, lessons learned, and observations informing best practices for the design, implementation, and service of a Learning Commons.
