Printing / Finishing Facilities

Ben ForteLearning Commons

Atmosphere - Resources - 4

Many learning spaces that I have visited have had great printing facilities, especially Universities. Some schools may have a dedicated print/design centre that has all the specialist equipment but in some schools these facilities are now being put into space where students can get greater access to more advanced finishing capabilities.

The sort of products you may want to consider include:

  • Colour Printer / Copier / Scanner (MFD)
  • Laminating
  • Binding
  • Large Format Printing
  • 3D Printing

I wouldn’t say that a Learning Commons must have these facilities but they are a nice addition if they are not available for students to access elsewhere in the school. Having these facilities would add a new dimension to the learning and outcomes that can be achieved within the Learning Commons.
