  1. 1. O’Kelly Library Information Commons<br />Bringing information to one central location<br />
  2. 2. Why a Learning Commons for O’Kelly?<br />“Libraries are changing…Library 2.0 could revitalize the way we serve and interact with our customers (Casey & Savastinuk, 2006)”<br />
  3. 3. At O’Kelly, we need to provide dedication, and service that best serves the students!<br />“It also attempts to reach new users and better serve current ones through improved customer-driven offerings. Each component by itself is a step toward better serving our users…(Casey & Savastinuk, 2006)”<br />
  4. 4. OUR NUMBERS SHOW THERE IS A GREAT NEED!<br />Surveys from last year show that there is an increased need for more technological assistance.<br />Out of all the questions: textbook/reserve, general, reference <br />( how to site) technical (black board to inserting images in PowerPoint) an estimated 50 % of questions were technical, 30% reference, 20% general/directional.<br />
