“One and One are Sometimes Eleven”: Local Source Partners and Technologies in the Killam Learning Commons
MetadataShow full item record
Eleven stakeholders currently share space in Dalhousie University’s Killam Library Learning Commons, with services ranging from research assistance and the IT help desk to tutoring, GIS & data services. Although some partnerships already exist between service providers, the future challenge lies in finding new and effective ways for these partners to collaborate among themselves. There is also an opportunity to incorporate new technologies to enhance the student learning experience and help increase retention. With that in mind, recent initiatives have been undertaken to help foster new partnerships and deploy new technologies in the commons.
