On November 24, 2007 UTS opened the Information Commons (IC), an information science and technology learning room for students. The IC was made possible by a generous donation by leaders from Japan who visited UTS early this fall.
The new facility is equipped with eight new desktop computers, one laptop and a projector as well as a shared printer. Students can learn various components of Information Literacy, Information Science, and Information Technology through instructional services, group projects, and individual work.
Part of the library staff has already started a series of workshops dealing with basic software programs.
