Talk with Catherine Murray-Rust, Dean of Libraries at Georgia Tech, about reimagining the research library for the 21st century, including (in their case) creating a shared collection with Emory University, renewing two library buildings, and adopting such techniques as portfolio management and supply chain thinking to reshape every job, process, program, and service. Learn more at the Library Next website about how in the renewal of the Georgia Tech Library, their physical spaces and library services are evolving to meet the changing research, teaching, and learning needs of the institution. The goals of the renewal project are “to show what a library really can be, and what research librarians and archivists really can do, like no other research library in America has yet done. . . . Georgia Tech’s own strategic plan includes enriching the student experience, developing an innovative environment, sustaining excellence in research and scholarship, and providing a cutting-edge infrastructure to support the faculty’s vision. . . . The new, re-imagined Georgia Tech Library building will be a space to provide many new physical, informational, and technological resources to do just that.”
