Emory's Research Commons: Connecting Scholars with Technology, Expertise, and Each Other in the Library
The Research Commons is a commons in the truest and best sense of the word. It is the destination for project teams who need collaborative space, technology and expertise to produce innovative work. Designed with total flexibility in mind, the Research Commons can morph and evolve to fit the needs of a variety of users and is the hub for Emory’s growing digital scholarship community. Scholars will be able to work on their own projects and the openness of the space will support serendipitous inspiration from others.
In addition to the scholars and library staff who flow in and out of the space, the Research Commons is the permanent home for the Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC). DiSC staff will use the space for consultations, collaborative work, and events such as workshops and guest speakers.
