OverviewMathewson IGT Knowledge Center TEECOM

As the prime information hub on campus, this 295,000 sf Knowledge Center and Library, comprised of classrooms, conference rooms, collaboration centers, and a large music hall, is the technology lifeline to students, faculty, and the community. Not only does the facility provide millions of digital and physical resources, but it also is a place that truly fosters collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Due to the robust and pervasive technology design, this facility also serves as one of the most technologically advanced knowledge centers and libraries in the country. The new library contains individual and group study areas, conference rooms, training areas, exhibit space, and a 180-seat lecture hall.

Mathewson IGT Knowledge Center TEECOMBehind the Walls

From the very beginning, TEECOM and UNR had two distinct visions for the utility of the Knowledge Center and Library. UNR envisioned the center as a high-tech library that encompassed a state-of-the-art computer tracking system, including a retractable robot for fetching books. TEECOM, on the other hand, envisioned a center for student and faculty collaboration, where technology would enrich a free-flowing exchange of information and ideas. Both visions were realized artfully in a design that leverages technology for practical as well as ideational purposes.
