The library’s Collaborative University Research and Visualization Environment (the CURVE) is a technology-rich discovery space supporting the research and digital scholarship of GSU students, faculty, and staff.

The CURVE’s mission is to enhance research and visualizations by providing technology and spaces that promote interdisciplinary engagement, collaborative investigation, and innovative inquiry.


The CURVE centerpiece technology, the interactWall is a large-scale video wall that is flexible and easy to use—yet powerful enough to render complex models and visualizations. The wall itself measures 24 by 4.5 feet, with over 25 million active pixels.

Students, faculty, and staff engaged in research, digital scholarship, and original creative activities can reserve the interactWall. When accommodations can be met, you may also reserve the interactWall for workshops, invited speakers, one-time class lectures, and related educational and training purposes.

For those wishing to use PowerPoint, download the interactWall PowerPoint template so that your content will expand across the entire interactWall.
