BU Libraries Information Commons Projects

Information Commons Phase 2

In September 2008, finishing touches were completed on the expansion of the Bartle Library Information Commons. Additional computers, printers, and scanners were installed in the most popular student computing facility on campus. The Bartle Library reference collection was shifted to make room for a new arrangement of computers featuring the highly popular furniture currently used in the Bartle, Science, and UDC Commons. A walk-up computer bar, additional express printing workstations, and printer islands to improve access to student printing are part of the expansion. Additional computers and study space will be available on the 2nd floor mezzanine above the Information Commons in the Fall of 2009.
