The Information Commons: The Academic Library of the Future.
MacWhinnie, Laurie A.
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v3 n2 p241-57 Apr 2003
Some academic libraries have adopted the idea of the information commons, a central location providing computers, information resources in various formats, and staff assistance. An overview of several information commons in the United States and Canada is presented, and missions, features, strengths and weaknesses are explored. A table identifies academic institution, commons name/date established, staffing/computers, and notable features. (AEF)
