We’re planning a library expansion adjacent to the Milton S. Eisenhower Library. The building will be built for technology-driven, collaborative learning and named the Brody Learning Commons to honor former president William R. Brody and his wife, Wendy.

Your help is needed as the design process gets under way. We’ve opened a forum for you to vote and comment online to help shape priorities for the Brody Learning Commons.

Go to http://brodylearningcommons.uservoice.com to offer your opinions about what features you’d like to see in the new building.


One thought on “Make Your Voice Heard About the Brody Learning Commons

  1. One thing I can’t find in any of the articles is where, exactly, the Brody Learning Commons is going to be constructed. I know it’s going to be south of the library; is it going to be based directly south of D-level, in the depression/parking lot by the Merrick Barn, or is it going to be southeast, in that lovely bit of quad overlooking the beach and adjacent to the Mattin Center? I understand the need for a new building, and it sounds like a really neat project, but the quad is a nice place to study or relax when you don’t want full sun or quite as many people as the beach, and it would be a shame to lose all the trees.

    Dear Becca:

    Thanks for your note. We’re still in the very early design stages and so haven’t determined the exact site of the Brody Learning Commons. However, we have identified the south side of MSEL as the most likely area. As we get further along in this process, we will be sharing more specific information with students, faculty, and the larger Hopkins community. Please look here and on the library’s homepage in coming months for more information on the Brody Learning Commons. And if you haven’t done so already, please give us your feedback on the UserVoice forum we’ve set up at http://brodylearningcommons.uservoice.com

    Best regards,

    Brian Shields
    Manager, Communications and Marketing
