UBT Knowledge Center – “Make local knowledge visible”
The UBT Knowledge Center was established in 2017, as one of the underlying pillars of UBT. The main purpose of the Knowledge Center is to gather data to produce information and create knowledge.
The Knowledge Center is comprised of three main parts:
Among others, UBT Knowledge Center aims to increase awareness and use of non-existent knowledge in order to create a wide range of other knowledge. Internet access’ anytime, anywhere ‘on online local and global knowledge platforms enables UBT scholars to convey the best ideas available from databases and especially publishers’ databases on the academic level.
Furthermore, this collaborative approach to foresight predicts to continue to further the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary nature of conversations in UBT’s realization of the knowledge vision that recognizes the critical importance of developing new and more complex ways to connect people, information and technology with university and society. Consequently, the UBT Knowledge Center aims to promote knowledge creation and conservation of intellectual, cultural, national and regional resources for future generations.
“The most important innovation enables the realization of much greater human potential. The catalyst for such creativity in higher education is the acquisition of new knowledge and learning from new experiences. In addition, within the environment of innovation and incubation, new thinking enriches the knowledge given by previous generations, expands contemporary life and provides data for growth in later developments. ”
In this regard, UBT aims to create a campus learning ecosystem – a Center of Knowledge comprised of various systems, services, platforms through the recreation and restructuring of UBT Libraries. Therefore, expected outcomes are primarily based on “synergistic” potential of powerful discovery and access to publisher’s content in academic rash (through the university library), up keeping intellectual property, (in an institutional database). Due to the fact, these innovations reflect the worldwide transformation of academic libraries into full-service teaching, research and project spaces.
Among other things, at the core of the concept of the Knowledge Center is the acquisition of knowledge through the interaction and exchange of knowledge, expertise and experience with others. However, this vision is closely related to innovation, incubation, elaboration of new concepts, etc. In this respect, it should be emphasized that the combination of information with human potential and technology, create opportunities for the further development of society as a whole.
It is also worth noting that the joint activities in the centennial plan provide excellent opportunities for inclusive participation, and foster mutual cooperation with relevant staff, students and faculty at UBT. Meanwhile, it also enables sustainable development in terms of transformation, creativity and innovation. This is done by combining experience with knowledge.
