Submitted by Alonzo LaMont on Sun, 04/21/2013 - 11:41am

The Sheridan Libraries are featured prominently in this Nature article that examines not only the past and present library model, but takes us into a future role that incorporates data-management and scientific collaborations as primary tools in the continual re-invention of libraries. This should come as no surprise. For centuries libraries have played the role of data-overseer.

It was a pleasure to speak with the President on the current and future status of Libraries. He not only referenced the Hopkins Libraries, but also of his recollection of time spent in Law Libraries.
