Visit the Digital Commons at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Housed in a renovated 11,000-square foot section of the library's ground floor, it contains a 3-D printer, an Espresso Book Machine that churns out tomes on-demand, an array of tablet devices, rows of computer terminals with AutoCAD, and several meeting spaces outfitted with some of the newest productivity technology.
Commons In A Box (CBOX) is a free software project aimed at turning the infrastructure that successfully powers the CUNY Academic Commons into a free, distributable, easy-to-install package. Commons In A Box is a project of the City University of New York and the Graduate Center, CUNY and is made possible by a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
