The Brian J. Flynn Discovery and Collaboration Space

The newly renovated library classroom

The newly renovated library classroom

The MacPháidín Library provides instruction for the Stonehill College community in its classroom, located on the first floor of the Library in Room 116. Named the Brian J. Flynn Discovery and Collaboration Space, and dubbed the DisCo, the room is used by librarians for teaching Information Fluency, by faculty as a collaboratory for single classes, and by students to study, collaborate on projects, and relax. The renovated classroom serves as a highly interactive space utilizing advanced technology and innovative learning space design to maximize student learning outcomes.

We intend for this space to be a state-of-the-art instruction and study space for students and faculty that supports a 21st century research, teaching and learning community.
