When opened in January 2012, Penn State’s Knowledge Commons at University Park offered students an inviting and welcoming space in the Library, accessible twenty-four hours a day, with a variety of services promoting academic success. Library staff work alongside information technology consultants, technology tutors, and multimedia specialists. A traditional circulation desk exists together with the IT Service Desk. This merger of services has proven popular with both students and faculty. This session presents data collected on the use of these services at Penn State. It reviews how, and when, students use the space and explores how learning spaces like the Commons can be replicated on other campuses.
