I have fond memories of using (even eventually managing) the library computer lab at Notre Dame University, where I was a student in the early ’90s. The lab was one of many services that the Hesburgh Library provided. In those days I used the library to find books I needed for papers; I used the library to find spaces I needed to complete my homework and writing, and to meet with others to share ideas and study; and I used the library to find technologies I needed to complete my assignments and communicate with others. The library was truly my “home away from dorm.” Libraries are critically important resources for students and communities alike.
