From the Vice Provost for Digital Initiatives and Dean of University Libraries

Dean Betsy Wilson
Lizabeth (Betsy) Wilson

The Libraries' mission of connecting people with knowledge includes "hands-on" methods, and we recently celebrated the opening of the Media Center's mediArcade in Allen Library. By utilizing state-of-the-art as well as "legacy" equipment, students can create, view, listen to and critique media in many forms.

As methods of disseminating knowledge evolve, our methods of accessing that knowledge--whether hand-written musical notes, scans of glass-plate negatives, or hand-penned diaries--assure that scholars of now and in coming years can see through the lens of the past to create knowledge for the future.
