Breaking Through Developing Multidisciplinary Solutions to Global Grand Challenges

About Purdue Libraries

The strength of the Purdue Libraries reflects the core strengths of the University – agriculture, engineering and science and the professional schools of business, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. The print holdings reflect the long history of collecting, both broadly and in depth, that support the core disciplinary areas. This focus continues in archives and special collections where the Flight Archives documents Purdue’s role from early flight to space exploration including the papers of Amelia Earhart to Neil Armstrong and Gene Cernan. The Goss Collection of Engineering and Transportation has outstanding materials that represent the history of engineering and transportation from the 16th century through the 20th. The Psychoactive Drug Research Collection supports pharmacological research in brain receptor absorption of medication to control Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Purdue Libraries faculty are collaborating with disciplinary faculty to develop methodologies and repositories for discovering, accessing, and sharing of data. The Purdue Libraries Data Curation Profile is a means by which a dialogue can be structured between a researcher and a librarian about data management needs of the researcher.
