“In the libraries of old, we focused on the materials on hand,” said Christopher Cox, dean of Rod Library. “People came in, checked out items or read in quiet contemplation. Now, although books and quiet spaces are still vital, we’re moving towards a more engaging experience for our students and faculty.”
The library is evolving into a place of creation and you can help with that transition. Students are taking the information they have and creating new things with it—power points, audio files, videos—and they need the space and equipment to do so.
