Library Learning Terrace - Drexel University (USA)

The Drexel University Libraries will unveil a new facility on campus in the spring of 2011. "This is the first step toward embedding the Libraries across campus," Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki said. "The Library Learning Terrace will give us the opportunity to study what contributes to an individual’s learning and to define a new library environment." Located in the heart of the University's residence halls, the Terrace will feature a flexible indoor space with endless possibilities. Students will have the flexibility to work at individual tables or work collaboratively in groups by assembling tables and partitions. Librarians and other experts will present at various times at a consultation hub. Expanding the Learning Terrace concept further, the Libraries is currently exploring the possibility of developing numerous library hubs throughout the Drexel campus. These smaller stations will serve as additional learning spaces where small groups of students can collaborate and receive assistance from University staff members. The Libraries can also use these hubs to further expand upon the thriving Personal Librarian Program, in which incoming students are each assigned a personal liaison in the Libraries
