Z. Smith Reynolds Library opened the Business Information Commons 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 School of Business.
The Business Info Commons is a collaborative effort between the Schools 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.
