The Robert S. Lemle '75 and Roni Kohen-Lemle '76 Academic Commons is located on the main floor of the Terrell Main Library.

This space is meant to foster community and offer research, information, technology, and learning assistance to our students. Collaboratively maintained by the Library and the Center for Information Technology, the Commons is one of the most frequented spaces on campus.
