Museums & Libraries
Short Takes from the Grounds
A Renaissance masterpiece by Bartolo Di Fredi comes together for the first time in more than 200 years at the U.Va. Art Museum, beginning March 2.
Using Innovation to Study and Archive the Past and the Future
Libraries and museums are central to the intellectual life of the University. Libraries of the future will continue to fulfill that role, but will change dramatically to foster the creation, discovery, and dissemination of new knowledge in the twenty-first century. New and evolving University programs require new content and new support expertise. New learning methods require innovative facilities and services to house the University’s collections.
The University must reconfigure twentieth-century facilities that were designed and furnished for antiquated modes of study and research. New facilities must support new technology and provide access to information and knowledge. These new libraries and museums will foster collaboration and interactions among faculty members and students in a multidisciplinary environment.
In addition to creating state-of-the-art facilities, the University must invest in librarians, curators, and professional development for its current staff.
