This book chapter provides context of how the Purdue University Libraries identified the need to support e-science and how it changed organizationally in response to this need. As an example of this support in action, the authors' work with CASPiE [the Center for Authentic Science Practice in Education), an NSF-funded Undergraduate Research Center (URC) based out of the Purdue Department of Chemistry] is included as a case study.
