Harold C. Smith Learning Commons
About the Learning Commons
A learning commons is a new way to provide resources and support to students and faculty. Formerly known as Babson Library, and originally devoted to physical stacks of books and journals, the newly designed Harold C. Smith Learning Commons makes way for updated functions to create and reinforce the type of learning environment that students need in the 21st century.
The Learning Commons includes four departments that provide important services to students and faculty: the Academic Success Center; Library Services; Information Technology Services; and the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship.
Check out the "Top 10 Ways the Learning Commons Can Make Your Life (slightly) Less Stressful," as written by our Outreach Librarian.
Due to social distancing required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Learning Commons is unable to accommodate visitors until further notice. You must have a current Springfield College ID to scan into the building and access all services. (8/31/2020)
