Knowledge Commons a Hit at Hampshire College

March 14, 2018

Centralizing academic services to increase student use is paying off at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. Dubbed the “Knowledge Commons,” the center is located on the first floor of the school’s library and features academic support programs like public speaking, library research and media, art gallery student exhibition support, and teaching and learning. Hampshire College says that since moving to the library, several of these programs have experienced an increase in attendance. In addition to the knowledge commons, the library plans to create a new technology and art commons and community commons.

More on Hampshire College’s knowledge commons is available on the Inside Higher Ed website.
