John P. McGowan Information Commons

The Northwestern University Information Commons, a partnership between the NU Library and NU Information Technology, is a new type of digital learning space designed to enhance existing teaching and learning areas in the NU Library. Located at the entrance to the Library, it is a "first stop" for many students, one where they can engage in independent inquiry or small-group interactions, and where the comfortable and modular arrangement provides a welcoming social environment.
