Libraries and Learning Labs Partner for “Learning Commons”

The ICC libraries and learning labs located at the East Peoria, Downtown and North Campuses will begin partnering more to provide centralized, convenient spaces where learning happens. The purpose of the partnership is to better serve students, faculty and staff. Each campus will see its own unique changes as transitions begin. These changes will occur incrementally, and we will keep employees advised of changes as they occur.
