The CUNY Academic Commons 2014 Annual Report is now available for download! We hope you’ll read it in detail.
Widely used “as shared space for individuals, campus committees, and academic departments,” the Commons continues to evolve, and we are proud of the growing collection of open source tools that we have developed to help foster collaboration and scholarship. The report showcases just a few of the ways our members use the Commons. This year, a number of scholarly publications have decided to use the Commons as a hosting platform. Cross-campus and campus-based initiatives on the Commons are very popular, and personal blogs continue to fascinate. Commons in a Box has been downloaded over 11,000 times, and is powering “a variety of organizations, including colleges and universities, scholarly societies, and non-profits.”
We hope you enjoy reading about the Commons community.
