At a ribbon cutting ceremony earlier today, Indiana University officials opened a new information commons giving students a new place to work and study.

With input from a case study done by students in a Kelley School of Business class, IU officials renovated the SPEA library into the new Business and SPEA information commons.

The commons, a joint venture between SPEA, the Kelley School of Business and Indiana University Libraries was built to meet the growing demands of students in the digital age. The new facility features both group and individual work stations all of which are equipped with multiple power outlets to power students laptops, smart phones, tablets and any other digital media.

“We have places where they can study quietly if they want quiet study space but we also have spaces where they can work together in groups and hook their laptops to a computer screen so they can look at things together and share them,” said Dean of IU Libraries Brenda Johnson. “So I think it really does represent what the students want.”
