Opening Fall 2023
The UT Libraries is reimagining part of the entry level of PCL to create a Scholars Lab. The Scholars Lab will be a space to conduct and enhance multidisciplinary research and digital scholarship. It will facilitate collaboration among students, faculty, departments, and centers across campus. The Lab supports experiential learning and will facilitate consultation with UT Libraries experts who can provide training on the use of robust technologies and tools designed to advance research. The Scholars Lab will build on successful Scholars Commons pilot as well as current library offering such as research consultation, workshops related to digital humanities, data analysis, and a space for events. The construction will begin in December 2022 and with a scheduled opening of Fall 2023.
