The Knowledge Center combines the best of traditional library resources with new digital and multimedia technologies. This pioneering information environment is designed to nurture creativity and stimulate intellectual inquiry.
The single greatest intellectual force and competitive advantage in the 21st century is the rapid assimilation of new knowledge to fuel innovation. New knowledge, applied to existing tasks, results in increased productivity; new knowledge applied to new challenges and tasks is fundamental to innovation. Recognizing this critical interplay between knowledge and innovation, the University of Nevada, Reno has established one of the first centers in the nation built specifically to embrace these dynamics of the 21st century.
The Knowledge Center will encompass all facets of the digital age in a single, synergistic complex.
Computing and information technologies are combined with the latest in graphical design technologies and the resources of the university library in a physical environment designed to maximize learning, nurture the production and distribution of new knowledge, and stimulate and sustain innovation.
