The SRJC Libraries have completed two stages of a multi-stage learning commons redesign of the Doyle and Mahoney Libraries. New tech-infused spaces and furniture invite collaborative learning and knowledge creation. Specialized group study rooms have been transformed into huddle spaces that now include 65” ultra-high definition displays with Solstice pods, in-wall wiring and simple control systems which see heavy student utilization daily. The reference areas have been re-conceptualized and reconfigured into research hubs, creating an environment for sustained one-on-one support for students with library faculty. The final stage of the learning commons redesign will be the development of six digital media suites to support digital communications, web design, virtual reality, and other digital media-related instructional activity.
