Georgia Tech and Emory University now offer students and faculty a shared collection of library resources

Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology today dedicated a new joint Library Service Center (LSC), a collaborative project that houses a shared collection of materials, provides delivery services and frees space on the main campuses at both universities.

The LSC, located at Emory’s Briarcliff Road property, is a secure, 55,000-square-foot, climate-controlled facility that employs state-of-the-art equipment and technology to house both special and general library collections, provide free access to them, and ensure cost-effective, long-term preservation of the materials.

“The new Library Service Center is a shining example of the long and productive public-private partnership between Emory and Georgia Tech,” says G.P. “Bud” Peterson, president of Georgia Tech. “Our complementary strengths produce powerful synergies. Our collaborations exist because both institutions believe great things happen when we work together to tackle big challenges.”
