The Library of the Future and Learning Commons project is aimed at understanding how the Geoffrey R. Weller Library can support UNBC teaching, learning and research for the next 25 years. Changes in teaching and learning practices, shifts in scholarly communication and changes in access to research have all impacted the role of the library in academia. Libraries are shifting from their traditional role as a repository of knowledge to a service-centered focus. The library is a place where patrons can engage with learning and research through collaborative spaces that combine technology, student support, content creation, meetings, reading and study.
