Learning Commons Microclimate Installation

The Libraries announce the initial phase of the Learning Commons Transformation Project in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. "Microclimates" of new furniture are installed on the north side of the Learning Commons and are expected to be fully completed by mid-October 2014. A microclimate is designed to facilitate students' use of technology, their study habits, and help-seeking behaviors.
