The Learning Commons is here! Soft opening at noon today!

To the Georgia Southern Community, Welcome to Your New Space at Henderson Library!

The employees of the Zach S. Henderson Library have been busy preparing for an expanded and newly renovated library building. It is our hope that you will utilize your library’s resources and services in order to achieve and promote academic success as well as enjoy yourselves in a warm inviting environment.

In an effort to meet the needs of the University, today the library is introducing a new concept called the “Learning Commons”, which is located on the 2nd floor of the library and open 24 hours. You’ll be able to get help with library research and software/hardware questions. Additionally, the library will partner with the Information Technology Services (ITS) Help Desk. The ITS Help Desk staff will provide assistance with WINGs, MyGeorgiaSouthern.edu, and WebCT from the Learning Commons as well.

Projectors will be located in the “Learning Commons” for practicing presentations or conducting small group sessions. There is an additional presentation room located on the 1st floor that students will be able to reserve for groups wanting privacy while rehearsing.

**Hot tip:  You can now do double-sided printing in the Learning Commons!  Please ask for help at the desk.

“Learning Commons” Layout

The “Learning Commons” was designed as  — A Place for Active Learning ·  A Place Designed to Put Users First ·  An Adaptable Place ·  A Functional Place ·  A Borderless, Integrated, Efficient Place ·  A Place Where Noise is Managed ·  A Safe and Secure Place. We hope you will visit us often and stop by if you have any questions.
