The Blissell Library has created a guide to aid in the location of materials at Penn State New Kensington related to the Country of Focus. We will be adding additional resources throughout the year. Click on the tabs above to explore materials related to our country of focus.
Penn State New Kensington chooses a Country of Focus each academic year. The 2020-2021 Country of Focus is the Czech Republic. Faculty will integrate information about the Country of Focus into their curriculum, and the campus will host cultural events related to the Czech Republic.
Penn State New Kensington has worked with Penn State Teaching and Learning with Technology to provide students with a unique learning experience with the use of 360° video and VR content. Through the Immersive Experiences Lab (IMEX LAB), a collection of videos has been curated for the 2020-2021 Country of Focus, Czech Republic. The Blissell Library has viewers available for check out to individuals, and classes to view these videos. Additionally, the Quiet Study lounge now features furniture specifically designed for use while viewing 360° video and VR content.
