An Innovative Study Space Helps PSU Students Succeed
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) recently created a video highlighting one of the Library’s newest and most dynamic space additions: The Sandbox. The video (below) features a series of interviews with students discussing their favorite aspects of the innovative technology space—the writeable wall surfaces, the touchscreen computers, and even the furniture that can be moved to create a more comfortable group study space.
The Sandbox is part of the Learning Ground, a renovated technology suite that features a computer lab, window seating, and the collaborative, technology-enhanced study space, the Sandbox. This addition to Millar Library was made possible by funding and collaboration between the University Library, the Office of Information Technology, and The Associated Students of Portland State University (ASPSU).
