In recent years, learning commons and makerspaces have become important topics for school libraries in an effort to better prepare students for the demands of the 21st century. This paper reviews the definitions of each and how they overlap. The author investigated research published in peer-reviewed books, articles, and journals; and this paper is a review of that literature. Librarians that have implemented one or both of these in their school library have seen favorable results, though the research is not conclusive.
