“So often, when we feel lost, adrift in our lives, our first instinct is to look out into the distance to find the nearest shore. But that shore, that solid ground, is within us. The anchor we are searching for is connection, and it is internal.”
Human connection defines the heart of my work in higher education. The GCC Library contains endless opportunities for meaningful connections, both with humans and books. Of course, our library offers more connections to information than just books on the shelf. But for me, a real book in my hands is the ultimate connection with ideas, content, and higher learning. Brene Brown is one of my favorite researchers. Check out her latest book, podcast, or TED Talks. Atlas of the Heart gives us an opportunity to learn a new language of deeper human connection.
