Join us on Thursday, September 7th, 3-4:30 pm, for a campus-wide event to celebrate the opening of the H-L Research Lab and the new home of Academic Technology & Consulting on the first floor of the library.
The Research Lab is an active and flexible space for formal and informal learning interactions among students, faculty, and research librarians. By reducing the barriers between scholars and librarians, the Research Lab provides enhanced opportunities for collaboration, consultation, support, and guidance throughout the research cycle. This re-envisioned and renovated space is adjacent to the research librarians’ offices so that scholars can easily move among independent, group, and consultative work environments.
In addition to facilitating enhanced research support, the Research Lab is also home to flexible furnishings for individual or group work, a small-group multimedia workstation, and comfortable reading chairs.
The relocation of Academic Technology & Consulting to a central location in H-L Library support’s the team’s efforts to engage actively with faculty and students. Their new “Innovation Lab” includes a common area for consultations, group discussions, hands-on workshops, and sharing innovative technologies to support teaching, learning, and research.
