The Library as Catalyst Project – Library Consultation Working Group

Description

In the Spring of 2018, the University Library embarked on developing a vision and framework for the Main Library and Special Collections. The vision under development as part of The Library as Catalyst calls upon Illinois to combine the rich, historical collections of the University Library into a “commons” focused on the humanities, arts, social and behavioral sciences. Leveraging our collections, the resulting operation will serve the humanities and social sciences in the same manner that existing institutes on this campus serve the sciences. Adjacent to a central home for our special collections, the resulting institute will serve as a hub of research and learning in the humanities and social sciences, amplify our remarkable collections, facilitate transdisciplinary investigations, optimize experimentation, and provide a mechanism to help facilitate the University tackle urgent questions.
