Defining the Technological Research Library for the 21st Century
As research libraries across the nation seek to reimagine their spaces and services, the Georgia Tech Library is leading the way in defining what it means to be an innovative, user-centered research library for the 21st century.
As a research institute, Georgia Tech needs a research library, and it needs capable Library faculty and staff to operate that research library.
The Library Renewal Project is a 5-year plan to transform the Library’s services and spaces to match the changing research, teaching, and learning needs of Georgia Tech.
This white paper will discuss the major elements of the Library Renewal Project, including:
- The work of a technological research library beyond the physical books
- The importance of Library as space
- The Library's role as an interdisciplinary platform for innovative scholarship and learning
- Library services as an integrated network of resources
