The Library as a Learning Space

Students learn in a collaborative environment that involves group study, collaborative research, instruction that fosters life-long information literacy skills, and educational and entertaining exhibits.  These education techniques demand flexible, non-traditional spaces and access to an ever-expanding array of databases and equipment.  Helping the library to construct, furnish, and equip study rooms, exhibit spaces, and other learning areas enhances learning and presents a naming opportunity.  Donors (or those whom they wish to memorialize) are honored with a plaque.
