About the Fusion Studio

Located in Room 2038 of Newman Library, the Fusion Studio is a learning environment designed to support interdisciplinary collaboration. It fosters a community of innovation through serendipitous dialogue and a “play to learn” mentality.

The Fusion Studio brings groups of students together in a co-working space for brainstorming, prototyping, and extended project management.  Access is offered on a long-term basis—from several weeks to the entire semester—in order to sustain the entire lifecycle of a project. With flexible workspaces and programming that facilitates the development of collaboration skills, the Fusion Studio brings to life the University Libraries’ mission to provide cutting-edge services and support emerging research practices.

The Fusion Studio includes:

  • Trained staff with expertise in diverse research methods, data management, and other areas of assistance  
  • Spaces designed and stocked for collaborative work and creative brainstorming
  • Adaptable layout for different types and phases of projects
  • Events, exhibits, and workshops based on student research
