Popular Posts on the Information Commons

I've picked up some new readers and thought it might be helpful to recap some of my favorite commons-related posts. Most all of these are focused on the Hub, the information commons at the University of Kentucky.

The Hubbub
This is our big party to welcome students to campus and introduce students to the library/the Hub.
2008 Hubbub, Our Biggest Party Yet

Three separate posts on 2007 Hubbub:
Part One: Planning Activities

Part Two: Publicity
Part Three: Staffing
Video Windows
One of the most visually striking things about our space is our video windows art display. My post on the video windows includes a number of elements: our design process, early exhibits, staffing, publicity, future plans.

Projected Floor Sign
Here's a post about our sign created from an old laptop and projector with wireless card.

Unusual Service Desks
Our service desks have gotten a fair amount of attention. I've answered a number of emails from colleagues around the world about the desks, so I thought it might be a good idea to create a post focused on the desks: why we chose them, how they've worked for us, future plans.

The Hub, The Video
Here's more about our promotional video.
