Student Support Services
ASB Learning Commons is an educational sharing space for collaboration, content creation,
readings and study. It replaces the concept of a “Traditional Library” by expanding its uses
in form and function. ASB Learning Commons’ mission is to inspire and support its users
towards creative and intellectual achievement while responsibly and ethically learning the
value of information, its acquisition, and its usage. Learning Commons includes a maker
space equipped with materials that provide an opportunity for students to explore and tinker.
The Learning Commons houses a wide collection of databases, eBooks and over 15,000
print books to engage students in critical thinking and to develop sophisticated literacy and
information literacy skills. All students, parents and ASB staff are considered ASB patrons and
are welcome to use all our resources.
