Beacons of knowledge illuminate new paths to wisdom

The libraries in which we share our collective knowledge are evolving into wired and comfortable forums. Their adaptable spaces and innovative technologies stretch our traditional notions of how best to store and access the tools we need for learning.

On the cover: Framed by the wrought-iron archway on Third Street, the Miriam B. and James J. Mulva Library catches the early morning sun. The ellipse, a striking architectural element at the building’s northeast corner, houses on its second floor the Center for Norbertine Studies and, on its third floor, a fireplace lounge for comfortable reading and a wonderful new view of campus.
