Global Systems Science: Library Space and Services
MetadataShow full item record
The VT Libraries imagine a commons in the Global Systems Science (GSS) building that support research and education and serves as an intellectual ecotone: a zone where several different ecosystems overlap, creating an environment for diverse and complex exchange dynamics. We see a science research commons as a similar system, bringing together research and education activities across a wide array of disciplines, programs, resources, and technologies in the GSS building. Librarians will serve a lead role in nurturing interdisciplinary dynamics, the exchange and transmission of ideas, and creation of new knowledge products.
