The NCSU Libraries is pleased to announce its inaugural Code+Art Visualization Contest. Through a competitive proposal process, the contest encourages students to create large-scale, data-driven “generative art” for the twenty-foot wide Art Wall at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. Selected proposals will receive a budget, work closely with Libraries staff to realize their project vision, and then compete for a grand prize to be awarded at a Code+Art reception at the Hunt Library in spring 2015.

Digital Objects, Textures, and Backgrounds
We have a number of DVDs with 2D and 3D digital objects, backgrounds, and textures that you can import into your work, whether it’s games, animations, or renderings. Most of these are published by Dosch, and searching for the publisher is the easiest way to find them:
The Design Library also has a number of sound effects libraries. These CDs have various sound files you can use in an animation or game. If you’re looking for a particular sound, you may want to do a search for that sound (ie. “auto” or “explosions”) and “sound effects.” You can also come to the Design Library and browse the cds. Here is a listing including most of the sound effects libraries:
Pattern and Stock Image Sources
We have several series of books that include patterns or images you can use in graphic design projects. The most useful ones come from two series- one published by Agile Rabbit, and other published by BNN. These books include both the images on paper, and also a CD with digital versions of the images. Copyright information is included in every book.

Which works and projects would you like to see in our database of images?
The Design Library offers high-resolution digital copystand photography and flatbed scanning as ways to improve and develop the contents of the Design Library Image Collection (available through LUNA) to better meet the needs of its users. This service gives faculty and students the opportunity to shape the contents of the collection into an invaluable resource that reflects current topics in teaching and research. Images requested will be the property of NCSU Libraries. The copywork will be done by the Visual Resources Librarian, Barbara Brenny, or Design Library staff. The library is not providing any personal image services at this time.
Copywork is only the first step in the process of adding new images to the collection. After the images are created, they will need to be cataloged and loaded into the online database. Digital images are made available through the Design Library’s online image database. An Image Request form is available at the front desk or on the Design Library’s website. Just bring the completed form and the publications with the images you would like to have digitized to Barbara Brenny, or they may be left with another staff member. Please visit the Image Requests webpage for important detailed information about this process.
OCLC’s Catalog of Art Museum Images Online (Camio) is a growing online collection of appproximately 100,000 images documenting works of art from prominent museums. Its contents represent global cultures from prehistoric to contemporary, covering the complete range of expressive forms. Camio’s browseable and searchable images may be downloaded and used for educational and research purposes, if they are properly cited.
North Carolina Architects & Builders website reaches milestone in documenting state’s architectural legacy
Mid-twentieth century modernist architect G. Milton Small, Jr. of Raleigh; Victorian era Charlotte house designer Harriet Morrison Irwin; German-born carpenter John Deitrick Tavis in antebellum Germanton; Civil War era joiner and A.M.E. minister George A. Rue of New Bern—these are just a few of the two dozen architects and builders whose new biographies have been added recently to North Carolina Architects & Builders: A Biographical Dictionary.
With these new postings, the popular North Carolina State University Libraries website passes a major benchmark, now presenting more than 300 biographies of architects and builders who worked in North Carolina and accompanying data on more than 3,000 buildings they created in the state.
Launched in 2009 with 170 entries, the biographical dictionary project had its roots in the late 1970s in research for the book, Architects and Builders in North Carolina: A History of the Practice of Building (University of North Carolina Press, 1990), by Catherine W. Bishir, Charlotte V. Brown, Carl R. Lounsbury, and Ernest H. Wood III. The biographical dictionary was originally conceived as a companion print publication, but in 2007 the concept shifted to a web-based, “born digital,” resource that can be easily searched and constantly expanded.
The free, user-friendly ncarchitects.lib.ncsu.edu contains essential information about the lives and works of the people who created the state’s architecture from the colonial period to the late 20th century. Content developer and architectural historian Catherine W. Bishir says, “We believe it’s important to include not just the great architects of landmarks like Biltmore and the Dorton Arena, but also lesser-known artisans and builders, black and white, enslaved and free, who actually built most of our architectural legacy.”
A frequent user of the site, Andre’ D Vann, coordinator of the University Archives and Instructor of Public History at North Carolina Central University, reports that in his research on historic houses in Durham, “I have found the North Carolina Architects & Builders website essential in uncovering the rich and unique stories behind many historical buildings and builders.” In particular it has “shed light on African American architects and designers like Gaston Edwards who braved a new world and created a body of work worthy of emulation.”
Frank Harmon, Raleigh architect and professor at NC State’s College of Design, sees North Carolina Architects & Builders as “exceptionally useful to our students and to scholars in North Carolina and beyond” because it offers “insight into the lives of the men and women who have shaped the built environment of our state, a lineage that continues to inspire us today.” Few states have achieved such a comprehensive biographical dictionary, says Harmon, and “none has a better website of architects and builders.”
The site has won prizes from the Preservation North Carolina and the Vernacular Architecture Forum for its innovative and inclusive approach. Multiple authors have contributed to the biographies and accompanying building lists. New entries are in progress, and as project manager Markus Wust comments, “The website itself attracts new information from users who help make it more complete. There’s always more to learn.”
ARTstor is a digital library of over 1.6 million images in the areas of art, graphic design, industrial design, the built environment, the humanities, and the sciences. It provides tools to browse, search, view, present, and manage images for research and teaching purposes.

From September 22nd to the 26th the Design Library and the Special Collections Research Center are hosting Image Discovery Week to highlight all of the image collections available through NCSU Libraries. Follow our blog blitz each day to learn about a wide variety of image-related resources. Stop by the Design Library for bookmarks, brochures, candy…and fun with Viewmasters!
For Image Discovery Week, todays featured resource is the Design Library Image Collection. It is an evolving and rapidly growing collection of images accessible through LUNA, a web-based digital library. The collection contains more than 70,000 digital images covering art, architecture, landscape architecture, industrial design and graphic design, including plans, sections, and other drawings. Records for the Design Library’s 80,000 35mm slides, can also be searched via LUNA. Library staff will digitize slides from the collection and make the images accessible through LUNA upon request. With LUNA, patrons can export high-resolution images, create media groups, and even share images and media groups using persistent URLs.
The most recent additions to the Design Library Image Collection include images, plans, sections, drawing, etc. of the following:
Portable Architecture – including Jennifer Siegal, Renzo Piano, LOT-EK, Tado Ando, Shigeru Ban, and
Contemporary Landscape Architecture – including Maya Lin, Landworks Studio, Laurie Olin, and more.
Works by Michael Van Valkenburgh, SWA Group, Turenscape, Sasaki Associates, EDAW, Shigeru Ban, and Harwell Hamilton Harris. Also, images on the topics of Post-Katrina New Orleans and Ideal Cities/Utopias.
Please remember that you must login with your Unity ID to see the high resolution images.
Check our blog each day this week to learn more about exciting and value image resources!
