About the Harold C. Smith Learning Commons: The Harold C. Smith Learning Commons


Welcome to Springfield College's Harold C. Smith Learning Commons.

The Springfield College Learning Commons at dusk.

Formerly known as Babson Library, the construction of this current building was completed shortly before the Fall of 2017. The building is located across the street from Judd Gymnasia and the Stitzer Welcome Center. The Learning Commons is named after Harold C. Smith, a former Springfield College trustee and former president, CEO, and chief investment officer of the college's YMCA Retirement Fund. 

The purpose of this guide is to acquaint users with the building's layout and its four floors, as well as to showcase the resources available within it.
