The purpose of this study was to determine if characteristics of the information commons model were being adopted by community college libraries in New Jersey. The study examined how closely these characteristics matched the models represented in the current four-year college and university literature. Email questionnaires were sent to library directors of community college libraries in New Jersey. The intention of the survey was to ascertain the library structure, budget, and staffing of community college libraries in New Jersey. Community college directors were asked to report on services their libraries provided and to rate library services commonly associated with an information commons service model. The results of the survey confirmed that New Jersey community colleges had incorporated some aspects of the information commons service model.
