The Academy and the Library

As a center of exploration and discovery in all disciplines, Doheny Library provides the ideal space for the Academy. As an academic institution, the Library embodies the integration of disciplines, methodologies, databases, and other considerations that constitute the Academy program. Located in the Library, by definition a center of interdisciplinary inquiry, the Academy looks outward to the array of disciplines flourishing at USC and, looking inward, seeks to bring as many of these disciplines as possible into focused interaction. In their own interactivity, the Academy and the Library form a powerful metaphoric and meta-cognitive environment for a promising new approach to interdisciplinary study.
