Following the successful opening of the Learning Commons on the Second Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library in early 2010, an additional study area is being opened on the First Floor in the Fall 2011 semester,

The  First Floor is being renovated for this new study area.    The map cases and microform cases have been moved into the Media and Digital Resources Lab to make room for the study area.  The MDRL and the former Service Desk staff have been combined to provide more convenient assistance to patrons using the microform and map collections, etc.

With 8600 square feet now available, plans are to install 400 new power sources, 16 group study area (available for four hours at a time), diner-style booths, L-shapted desk, couches and comfortable chairs.

Working with designers and the Student Advisory Council for Auburn Libraries, and with funding from EBSCO, the new First Floor study area of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library is underway.

Auburn University Libraries announce an exciting new way for students and faculty to meet and share ideas with the availability of two media:scape locations in the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

The media:scape system offers a "walk-up and connect" solution that allows up to six MS Windows or Apple laptops to be simultaneously connected to a monitor.  Users can then switch between computer video feeds with just the touch of a button - facilitating the sharing and comparing of individual ideas in a collaborative learning environment. 

The library has two configurations of the media: scape hardware.  In the First Floor installation (currently reserved for undergraduate use) two medium-sized monitors can be individually controlled, making it easy to compare two ideas or solutions simultaneously.  On the Third Floor there is a single large-monitor installation that allows up to six people to easily work on a single project.  The Third Floor installation is open for reservation by all students and faculty.  Reservation for the media:scape rooms are on a first-come first-served basis and the rooms may be booked for up to four-hour blocks of time through the First Floor Circulation Desk, either in person or by contacting J.P. Pendleton at 844-4094 or pendlaj@auburn.edu .
