Penn State students, faculty and workers have access to diverse research from all over the world. It is presented in books and through Penn State e-libraries. However, ease of use is an issue with the typical student growing up and learning to use the Duey Decimal system in a library of about 100 square feet, at the largest, being introduced to the Patee/Paterno Library and being overwhelmed by the expanse of knowledge available and underwhelmed by the help to navigate the vast cyber and drywall hallways of information.
A system that allowed for an easier way to obtain these ideas would vastly benefit the students and the surrounding community.
Also, the library is filled with such great opportunities, but there is no access for the local community that struggles with poverty and literacy rates. What is the point of this knowledge if it cannot be shared?
