Steenbock Library offers tours of proposed Bio-Commons Project spaces

The CALS community is invited to tour campus’ proposed Bio-Commons Project spaces in Steebock Library on two dates in April.

The Bio-Commons Project is a joint educational innovation project launched by the Institute for Biology Education and Steenbock Library to create a community and learning space for bioscience students across campus—a bio-commons. The space will be a welcoming home base where students can connect with each other, as well as a central gateway to the biosciences where they can find information, get engaged in high-impact learning experiences, access support services, and integrate their experiences into a meaningful whole.

The tours are scheduled for Thursday, April 4 from 4-5 pm and Monday, April 15 from 12-1 pm. They will be led by Lisa Wettleson, interim head of Steenbock Library, and Jessica Newman, Steenbock undergraduate services librarian.

Please contact Jessica Newman at to RSVP or to set up a tour at an alternative time. RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
