Library of the Future Fund

Rendering of new library

‌This new fund will ensure that the library workspaces of the future will keep pace with changes in education, research and student needs. No VCU student in the year 2050 should encounter the furniture we install in 2015. It also will anticipate and prepare for vast changes in technology that already are driving scholarship and inspiring innovation. More has changed in technology in the past 10 years than, arguably, in the previous 100. Tomorrow's academic libraries will see even more radical change. We must be prepared.
