Acquiring, organizing, making accessible, and preserving information and data, including faculty archives, university records, theses/dissertations, and other output created by the university, is the library’s reason-for-being.
Paper Submitted to ARN Envisioning the Future as Critical Partners in Data-Driven Science Workshop
Libraries, archives, and museums have traditionally preserved and provided
access to many different kinds of physical materials, including books, papers,
theses, faculty research notes, correspondence, and more. These items have been
critical for researchers to have a full understanding of their fields of study as well as
the history and context that surround the work.
