“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.” ― Albert Einstein
The idioms remain curious and be present guide our work at UNL Libraries. Being present or “mindfulness” as psychologist Ellen Langer puts it, is the process of actively noticing new things. If one is truly actively noticing new things, curiosity about these things is sure to ignite. Come visit the Libraries, online or in person, and let us help you journey from curiosity and idea conception to research and production.
It is this very practice of actively noticing new things that helped us develop a learning commons. We wanted to build a collaborative learning space with expert assistance on hand to aid UNL students and faculty in their creative processes. This idea came to fruition in the Adele Coryell Hall Learning Commons. A beautiful and inspiring space, it has a central ASKus & Huskertech zone staffed with knowledgeable people, ready to help. Group study rooms, workstations, artworks, special print collections, and Dunkin’ Donuts add functionality and comfort.
At the Libraries, we offer a full-range of services to meet your needs wherever you are in the creative process. Come visit us today.
