  • Sheridan College: We were end user researchers at Sheridan College, which entailed surveying staff and students regarding their experience and needs in using the Learning Commons in order to determine the impact on the bottom line for the students. Particularly, our Key Performance Indicators​​have helped them improve their end user service delivery. Our research served to better frame the development of the physical learning commons design and evolution. (Oakville, ON)

  • College of the Rockies: From our work with Sheridan we were referred to a major western community college, the College of the Rockies in British Columbia. Here we conducted interviews with staff and created a report detailing recommendations for their Learning Commons and what it could bring to students and how it would improve and impact the library services for students and staff. By transforming their Library Services into a Learning Commons, we completely transfigured their information services into a model suitable for the new millennium. (Cranbrook, BC)
