The Canadian Learning Commons' 3rd annual conference
"The Canadian Learning Commons' 3rd annual conference is being hosted by the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, June 8-10 2008. We are gathering together speakers from universities and community colleges in the Atlantic Region, all of whom share our interest in bringing critical research services into one venue for our students. Atlantic universities have responded to students' requests for alternative study spaces, integrated services, and a reconceptualising of the traditional library. Our regional initiatives are likely a reflection of work being done wherever Commons are being created. We look forward to showing our 'work-in-progress,' as the Learning Commons concept continues to evolve, and to sharing ideas for future steps with attendees from all jurisdictions"
