The library as a physical and virtual space for discovery is on the front line of education. Today, teaching and learning are multimodal, using combinations of speech, text, video, images, illustration, and other media, in the classroom and online, to engage learners. The Libraries must respond in equally revolutionary ways, and this magazine gives a glimpse of the kinds of things we do to support students and faculty, thanks to the generosity of donors.
