The mission of the Learning Commons is to create a unique learning hub integrating technology, information and expertise in order to strengthen teaching, research and learning opportunities for UOM & ITUM students, faculty, and staff.
The library and its partner groups worked together to create a cohesive plan of action during the 2011-2012 academic year to recreate the floor plan of the library to accommodate the changes needed to enhance study and work space.
This included improving the library environment (appearance, physical conditions, and services). It also included some breakthroughs such as facilitating barrier free learning (learning commons), visiting the library with own bags, promoting discussion in discussion areas etc.
The Library has now gone through half of the project which is large scale enhancement to the building, other physical resources, services, and the approach in providing library services.
