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.

No fault of the speaker, but it was unfortunate that the stream to the overflow room didn't work. I was able to find a suitable seat inside the Auditorium; I sat with the photographer on the bench in the back of the room.

I have never been to Burning Man. I always enjoy the photos of artwork from Burning Man and the art cars that do events in downtown Reno. I appreciate that Crimson Rose is passionate about her craft of fire dancing but I guess I was expecting more of the mechanics than the "religious" fervor of fire dancing. I used to belly dance, so I understand the love of movement, of the flow, of one's expression in the dance, but I guess the direction of the talk just didn't work to me. It is certainly nothing against the speaker's belief, nor her love of her craft, it was certainly evident. It just wasn't what I was looking for. The powerpoint slides were beautiful.

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!
