The Learning Studio group spaces have been designed with groups in mind. Though there are many locations in the library to support individual study, the Learning Studio provides rooms and collaborative spaces to help groups at any stage in their project.

Our collaboration rooms have been designed for groups from 2 to 8. Computers and large-screen monitors are available to support team projects at each step in the process.

Collaboration 1  (2-6 people)

    The first collaboration room features one of three Media:scape tables allowing groups to share content from laptops quickly.

 

  • Media:scape table with dual monitors
  • Laptop adapters for checkout (ask at front desk)
  • A whiteboard wall for outlining ideas quickly

.

Collaboration 2  (4-8 people)

    The second collaboration room next to the Speaking Center is really an expanded Idea Room.

The idea rooms are far more than small-group study carrells. They provide the perfect blend of analog and digital to get your project started.

    Each idea room offers the same capabilities so they’re interchangeable.

  • LCD and MacMini computer
  • 2 whiteboard walls for outlining ideas quickly
