More than 800 votes cast in “chair fair”

More than 800 votes, both online and on paper ballots, were cast in our Learning Commons “Chair Fair,” which ended on September 29. We received lots of thoughtful and helpful comments as well. We’re tallying the results and will report back soon with details about the winning chairs. Thanks for your participation!

Learning Commons “chair fair”

We’re renovating and creating new learning and study spaces—the very first steps toward creating a Learning Commons at UMass Dartmouth. We’ll be asking your opinion about many of the services and amenities we hope to offer.

Now through Sept. 29, we’re considering new chairs.

Visit the “chair fair” on the Library lower level to try out four new armchairs and two new task chairs. You can “vote” for your favorites in person, by using our form, or by sending us your comments via our blog (see below).

Planned for the lower, first and second floors of the Claire T. Carney Library, the Learning Commons will be a collaborative learning space offering access to resources, technology, and people to support teaching, learning, and research. Additional information is available on the Learning Commons site, and we’ll be posting more news here in the weeks to come.
