Innovation Library

The ASU Innovation Library serves as a knowledge repository for the institution, capturing exemplar stories of innovation at ASU. Through written cases, videos and podcasts, the resources in the library explore what enables innovation to happen at ASU and the key lessons learned from leaders and teams of innovative efforts. The library advances institutional knowledge and memory and the stories featured provide ideas and insights to inspire and encourage the next generation of innovators at ASU.
