What Do You Think? We Want to Know!

Dear School of Music Faculty and Graduate Students,

The Libraries would like to invite you to participate in shaping the future of the Research Commons.

The Research Commons Committee is working to establish a Research Commons space on the ground floor of Allen South. This space will provide a "community of scholars" for graduate students, teaching assistants, faculty and undergraduates doing research. The new Commons is envisioned as a technology-rich space for collaboration for all the disciplines, as well as interdisciplinary studies. Support for group research, meetings, seminars, presentations and the creation of media productions will be provided in the space. We believe that the Commons will evolve over time, with active input on its development from all stakeholders.

The focus group for faculty members will be held on December 2 in the OUGL conference room (room 129) from 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm.

The focus group for graduate students will be held on December 3 in the OUGL conference room (room 129) from 12:30 pm to 1:20 pm.

Lunch will be provided for both sessions. Questions we will be discussing are attached. If you are interested in participating or have questions about this project please RSVP by 5pm, Tuesday, December 1 to:

Verletta Kern
Music Research Services Librarian
