Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center

The reason the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center is not formally called a library is because it’s a lot more than simply a repository of books.

The university's Knowledge Center offers University students much, much more, including technology resources, academic support and spaces designed for collaboration. It is a place where students can do their own research towards creating new knowledge.

For students looking for an academic edge, here are the things to look for in the Knowledge Center:


This is a computer lab on steroids. @One (pronounced "at-one") offers students a wide array of computers, advanced software, multimedia and video equipment, printing tools, and expert staff to help with any sort of academic endeavor.

The Research & Computing Help Desk

The Research and Computing Help Desk is a combination reference and computer help desk. Students with any sort of computer or research question are welcome to walk up and ask for help.

Special Collections and University Archives

Like most flagship research universities, the University of Nevada, Reno has an impressive collection of historical items available to students. Among the items are several 15th century books, thousands of historical photographs of Lake Tahoe and diaries of western pioneers.

This event was very well put together, Will Roger is a phenomenal speaker and I was glad to get an opportunity to hear more about the inter-workings of burning man and the culture that goes along with it, and tri tip appetizer afterwards was so delicious!
