“The library offers a great variety of learning spaces – collaborative and individual – whatever is needed to achieve the best results. The furniture on the second floor Learning Commons is designed to let students create their own space. The chairs and tables are light and can be moved around and arranged as the students need them,” (University of Calgary).
Currently under construction, Ryerson University’s Student Learning Centre in Toronto, Canada is going to be “… a beautiful building featuring bright, open, technologically rich, barrier-free creative spaces where [students] can study, collaborate and innovate,” (Sheldon Levy, Ryerson University President).
“The library expansion project will allow Carleton to become a leader in modern university library design. The Design Team incorporated current trends in learning commons and library design which emphasize social and group learning spaces,” (Carleton University).
