New Learning Commons Opening This Week

The Learning Commons at the University of Houston Libraries is celebrating its opening on Wednesday, April 8. From their website:
The M.D. Anderson Library is now home to the Learning Commons, a new unit that caters to the high-end multimedia and collaborative needs of students, staff, and faculty of the University of Houston. This space not only provides a wide array of digital media creation resources, but also affords patrons an opportunity to learn about new technology, receive training on specialized research software, and collaborate on projects with one another in a space conducive to cooperative work.
A nice touch is that all of the computers in the Learning Commons and their presentation practice room may be reserved up to one week in advance. I looked around briefly but did not find any images of their commons; if you know of some, please post the link in the comments. Thanks!
