Abstract

Now that constantly-evolving technology systems fulfill many of the tasks that used to
occupy library staff, many academic and research libraries are exploring new ways to
contribute to their institutions’ learning communities. The OCAD University Library’s
Learning Zone is one of these experiments: an inclusive, open, creative space with the
mission of enriching the student experience through collaborative, hands-on learning,
meaningful extra-curricular programming, and useful training opportunities. This article
examines the best practices and approaches Learning Zone staff have developed in the
five years since the space launched.
