Houston, Texas, United States
A vibrant place of exchange
The Cheryl and Philip Milstein Center for Teaching Learning puts forth a very different idea for the programming that a library can offer. It is a 21st-century vision: interdisciplinary workspaces for groups both large and small; co-location of faculty in economics, mathematics, history, and other liberal arts disciplines; new homes for the Athena Center for Leadership Studies and the Barnard Center for Research on Women; and a brand new technological suite of multimedia centers called the Digital Commons. Replacing the former Lehman Library at the center of campus, the building is the new hub of academic and intellectual life at Barnard College.
