Focus group participants needed - help design your library of the future!

Great news!  CCC is beginning to plan for a new learning commons in the existing Douglas Library space.  The learning commons will host tutoring and the library, and perhaps other support services.  Let us know what you think - participate in a focus group.  You'll be given a chance to let us know what currently works and what doesn't, what you need to be successful, and what you'd like to see in your library of the future.

Dates and times will depend on participant availability, so sign up soon to be a part of the conversation.  Did we mention there will be food? 

We look forward to working with you to meet your academic needs in a brand new space.  Visit the library service desk to sign up today!

You might wonder, "What is a learning commons?"  According to Wikipedia, "Learning commons, also known as scholars' commons, information commons or digital commons, are learning spaces, similar to libraries and classrooms that share space for information technology, remote or online education, tutoring, collaboration, content creation, meetings and reading or study."

Similar to what CCC is planning, read about another community college's renovation
