Information Commons Discussion Group
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Pacific
We will gather to discuss Information (Learning) Commons issues including planning, implementation, development, management, and others. The discussion is open to anyone interested in commons spaces. The discussion will include a range of topics pertinent to institutions considering the implementation of a commons space, to those whose commons are just beginning, and to seasoned veterans of the commons movement. Attendees are encouraged to come with questions or topics that they would like to discuss with the group. In this way, the discussion will be fulfilling for those with specific questions, and will give an overview of commons issues to those who are new to the idea.
The group discussion will take the shape of the attendees’ interests. In addition to the topics brought by attendees, the discussion conveners will bring a list of commons topics, related news items, and other ideas to stimulate discussion.
