Session Abstract (150 words): 

A commons is a shared asset that benefits multiple stakeholders. A digital “information commons” is an open source repository of information and resources. The leadership of the Organizational Learning & Evaluation Capacity Building Topical Interest Group (OL-ECB TIG) is in the process of developing and populating the OL-ECB Commons to house resources that support TIG members’ efforts to facilitate organizational learning and build evaluation capacity. The purpose of this think tank will be to present what we have developed, invite comments and suggestions for improvement, identify additional content, and seek volunteers to help manage and curate the Commons.
