Center for Global Learning
The Sonawalla Center for Global Learning is located in the redefined Upper Snowdon library. In addition to limited print materials housed in the stacks, the space includes individual and small group study areas, digital research resources, video teleconferencing and streaming facility, with the flexibility to include new technologies as they emerge.
Our current library has been transformed into a 21st century workspace to address how students learn today. Flexible and adaptable library spaces will support varied instructional techniques, promote student collaboration, and enhance online and face-to-face communication. The new Center for Global Learning allows spaces where students can work alone in individualized research stations or work cooperatively in different sized groups in either open areas or in smaller, private breakout rooms. A designated mediascape is necessary for the increasing number of domestic and international interactions with students from other schools.
Because research is continually changing, the landscape of the Center for Global Learning has become a virtual library. An online academic library currently includes annual subscription databases such as Journal Storage (JStor), Project Muse, and many others to keep current the research information and provide ready access for all students and faculty
