The Dogmen Revealed: Animal Husbandry in Greyhound Racing
August 28, 6:00 – 7:00 PM
Where: The North Theater in College of Veterinary Medicine, 1060 William Moore Drive, Main Building, Room C120

Dogmen are the workers behind the sport of greyhound racing: they care for, breed, train, and race these unique dogs. Gwynn Thayer, author of Going to the Dogs: Greyhound Racing, Animal Activism, and American Popular Culture, will discuss the dogmen’s historic role in the sport as well as their role as animal caretakers. Gwyneth A. Thayer earned her Ph.D. in Public History in 2010 and joined NCSU Libraries as the Associate Head and Curator of Special Collections in January 2013.

This Friends of the Library event is free and open to the public. Let us know that you are coming — http://go.ncsu.edu/dogmentalk

Would you like beanbag chairs in the Vet library?

VetMed News - Wed, 2013-07-17 08:49

Several NCSU Libraries provide beanbag chair seating. Two beanbag chairs are currently in the southeastern quiet reading space of the Veterinary Medicine Library for you to try out. Please let us know by August 31 if you would like beanbag chairs in the library. These are pretty firm–they can remove pellets to make them squishier, so let us know if you have opinions on that aspect as well. libraryvetmed@ncsu.edu
