Information Commons in Laguna Now Open!
Keeping up with the foremost objective of the Laguna Campus to be the center of science and technology, the Libraries formally launched the Information Commons last 28 March 2019. The Information Commons in Laguna is a library that emphasizes more spaces that imbibe collaboration and digital scholarship. It was established in support of the academic, learning and research mission of the university. With the evolving learning needs of our students today, it is goal of the Libraries' to have people come to the library and experience this innovative learning space.
The Information Commons houses the following spaces: (1) a Gaming Zone where students can play board games and video games; (2) an interactive multimedia room that seats 30 students; (3) a Faculty Lounge and the Cyber Zone.
The event was attended by the directors and coordinators from the Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Services (OAVCAS) headed by Ms. Kai Shan Fernandez. Dr. Gil Nonato Santos, Vice Chancellor for the Laguna Campus, was represented by Dr. Roy Francis Navea, Academics Director, Laguna Campus. Members of the Laguna Campus community were also present during the event.
The Information Commons is located at the 2/F West Wing, Milagros Del Rosario Bldg. Open from 7AM to 7PM, Mondays through Fridays, and 8 AM to 12PM on Saturdays.
