The Scholars Lab, on the north side of the top floor, will open in October and will provide new access to scholarly software that previously has not been available at ACU, for example, we’re seeking to provide access to the most robust tools for searching and analyzing texts, like the Bible, and for tracking and visualizing behaviors, like eye-tracking tools to measure human interaction with computer screens. We’ll have experts staffing the Lab to assist with the use of these new tools. The Lab will also also showcase emerging hardware for research, such as the next generation of digital screens, and it will support student and faculty publishing efforts on the Web, like electronic theses/dissertations and open-access journals.
