W. M. Keck Foundation Learning Room
The W. M. Keck Foundation Learning Room, located in Honnold/Mudd Library, is a key addition to the library's instructional resources. Funded by a grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation, the Learning Room, which was completed in January 1998, is the result of collaboration among many individuals and groups. At the dedication on March 4, 1998, CUC Executive Vice President Mitch Dorger said, "From a practical standpoint this room will dramatically increase the ability of our students and faculty to meet the academic challenges of today's high tech environment. Symbolically, the completion of this room marks a landmark step toward the learning environment of the 21st century."
The Learning Room provides state-of-the-art audio-visual and network technologies for instruction that will allow the library to help students find their way through the increasingly bewildering maze of choices for locating, analyzing, and using information. Students will be able to learn to use library and information resources in highly interactive, hands-on classes. In addition, each workstation provides space for students to work collaboratively with others.
