Exploring the new Knowledge Commons at Penn State

While visiting my parents this weekend in State College, I took a trip up to the Penn State campus to visit the new Knowledge Commons in Pattee Library. It’s always a treat to see new spaces coming online on campus. In short: what a fabulous space for students! To name but few quick obserations… There are post production labs and quiet meeting rooms with sound proofing. There’s even a self-service recording studio where a student can practice public speaking. At the end of practice, a copy of the recording gets automatically written to your thumb drive. How cool is that? But one of nicest features is the very nice live wall with real plants. Below are some pictures I took using my Droid 2 Mobile camera. I’m sharing the images via flickr with the Awesome Flickr Gallery plugin. My flickr account is found here.
