Info Commons Project Documents

David from the InfoCommons and Beyond blog has posted a link to some interesting documentation from Georgia Tech. The documents seem to be a few years old, but they still provide some good insights:
The good folks at Georgia Tech have posted a very useful set of documents on planning and assessment: focus groups, questionnaires, a case study by Herman Miller, and fascinating essay by freshman Erica Hocking on the the Commons as a "Sacred Space" for learning.
If you haven't already, be sure to check out the InfoCommons and Beyond blog--the sidebar contains lots of links to commons spaces around the world, as well as relevant reading, presentations, and other documents.

You should keep an eye out for the results of the competition this year, they will be posted on the IDEC's website at:
