In the ever-evolving technological landscape, one concept stands out as both a beacon of progress and a source of intrigue and concern: artificial intelligence (AI). Once confined to the realms of speculative fiction and film, AI - particularly generative AI - has emerged as a tangible force reshaping the fabric of our reality.

Dartmouth undergrads are conducting research in every academic discipline, from the sciences and social sciences to the humanities and creative arts. However, they don't have many opportunities to share their work with audiences outside their research fields.

As technology evolves, uncommon collaborations across engineering, geography, and computer science are increasingly driving progress in geospatial technologies and their applications in everyday life.

We’re celebrating Rauner Special Collections Library’s 25th anniversary and its community of researchers! 

Since opening its doors in the renovated Webster Hall in 1999, Rauner Library continues to make magic happen every day. Within its glorious spaces with lovely light and architectural features, many amazing moments and achievements have occurred. It’s a space where students and researchers have delved into Rauner Library’s rare and unique materials to make new discoveries.

The Libraries recently hosted an open panel called "Sparking Conversations: University Presses and the State of Scholarly Publishing.” Guest speakers included university press directors Amy Brand from MIT, Christie Henry '91 from Princeton, and Charles Wilkinson from the University of Michigan, giants in scholarly publishing. They shared challenges and opportunities arising from the shifting scholarly publishing landscape and ways they are actively transforming the field and championing action within their institutions and the scholarly ecosystem.

“After traveling just an hour West, we saw something dark on the horizon...and by aid of the glasses saw that it was 'the lost one'...We bundled her on the sled and brought her home, where she now sits, moping. Crawford tried to ascertain what her objective in leaving was and where she had been but to no avail” (page 39).

We're excited to share that work is underway to refresh and redesign the Dartmouth Libraries website. 

While the Home and About pages have had the most significant transformation thus far, you'll notice other web pages reflect the same typography, artwork, and stylistic updates. These design elements result from an intensive twelve-week project to update Dartmouth Libraries' Visual Identity.
