The Business Information Commons opened in Farrell Hall in July. Located on the second floor, the Info Commons serves as space for quiet study, group study and research sessions with the librarians. The Info Commons includes a large room with general seating, two study rooms and a workroom with the Bloomberg Terminal.
Librarians Bob Hebert and Mary Scanlon have their offices in the Info Commons, which places them in close proximity to the faculty and students of the Wake Forest University School of Business. They have already seen an increase in drop-in business compared to their previous locations in Worrell Hall and the ZSR building.
The Business Info Commons is a collaborative effort between the School of Business and the Z. Smith Reynolds Library. ZSR now provides services such as Course Reserves, Interlibrary Loan and ZSR Delivers to School of Business faculty. ZSR now also manages subscription purchases of databases and journals for the School, and the ZSR building houses the print book collection.
Farrell Hall is still receiving some finishing touches as new furniture and fixtures continue to be added. It is open to the public and welcomes visits from anyone on campus. Einstein Bagels is proving to be a popular eating spot. Please stop by to see the Information Commons on your next visit to Farrell Hall.
