Clemson University library unveils classroom of the future

“With a supercomputer connection 10,000 times faster than the typical home Internet connection and a bank of synchronized ultra-high-definition video screens that spans nearly 60-square-feet, the new digital resources laboratory unveiled Thursday at Clemson University is being called a first-of-its-kind “classroom of the future.” The Edgar A. Brown Digital Resources Laboratory at the R.M. Cooper Library offers professors, students and researchers a place to share ideas and enable as many as four remote audiences at a time to collaborate via video conferencing, according to Galen Collier, computational scientist with the university’s campus IT group.” (via The State)

Clemson libraries to launch institutional repository, celebrate Open Access week

“Often times, in our rush to publication, we view copyright transfer agreements as simply an administrative hurdle to overcome. We sign these agreements, transferring many, if not all of our rights to our scholarly articles to our publisher. However, a mounting body of research suggests that making our work Open Access —freely available online without subscription restrictions— in any form, increases its impact. With the launch of TigerPrints, Clemson’s institutional repository, members of the university community will now have the infrastructure necessary to openly disseminate their scholarly articles.” (via Clemson University)
