Lincoln, Neb., January 7th, 2016 —

Members of the media are invited to join a guided tour of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's newest academic hub -- the Learning Commons at Love Library.

The tour will begin at 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, at the south entrance of the Learning Commons at Love Library North. Led by Nancy Busch, dean of UNL Libraries, the tour is expected to last about a half-hour.

Located on the first floor of Love North and providing an almost full view of UNL's City Campus, the new $10 million, 30,000-square-foot Learning Commons is designed to accommodate and promote intensive study and scholarly work. It is built to allow collaborations and cross-discipline connections between students and faculty within a technology-rich space.

The space includes a Dunkin' Donuts coffee and baked goods cafe, 18 private study rooms, access to an ASKus service desk, a Huskertech help station and a One Button Studio where users can easily record presentations. The Learning Commons can accommodate about 500 people and also has an outdoor plaza with additional seating.
