Science and culture are fundamental to build critical thinking, imagination, creativity, and innovation - knowledge. The dialogue between science, culture, technology and artistic expression is a new approach that the FCT Library is using to answer to broad challenges and to a variety of responses required by the users. The FCT Library plays a diverse role, not only as a Documentation Center, but also as a cultural interface with the Campus and the surrounding Community (including schools). Art (painting, sculpture, photo, installations by recognized and new artists) has been our major attention, as well as Music, Theater and Seminars that cover a wide range of topics. The FCT Library structured work adapted to the actual public needs, changing the course and image of traditional libraries, becoming a “Library beyond the books”. The opening of the FABLAB, in articulation with the FCT Library, has resulted in a winning bet, and programs are ongoing (i.e., INNO3D Erasmus+) for developing a comprehensive 3D printing program for librarians in a pedagogical approach for training in the use of new technologies.
