NRL News - Fri, 2012-06-22 15:49

Key Library Services Unavailable June 29 through July 1

Design Library News - Mon, 2012-06-18 13:33

On June 29, the NCSU Libraries will begin moving our entire server infrastructure from D. H. Hill Library to the new state-of-the-art server room in the Hunt Library. This move is a critical step along the way toward opening the Hunt Library in January 2013 and will help to keep the Libraries on the forefront of providing technology-rich spaces and services to our community. However, the move requires us to unplug every piece of server equipment in the D. H. Hill Library, pack it, transport it to the Hunt Library, and bring all services back up.

What services will be unavailable?

Starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 29, and lasting throughout the weekend, many significant services, including searching the Libraries’ catalog, accessing online journal articles and databases, and course reserves online will be down. Much of the content on the Libraries’ website will also be unavailable during the weekend.

While there are partial workarounds for some of these services, it is best to plan ahead and avoid having to depend on them over this period.

Other options for searching

You can use other search tools such as Search TRLN, WorldCat and Google Scholar during the outage and still, as usual, come to the Libraries and use books and articles that the Libraries has in print form.

However, because your access to many online research materials and databases is often authenticated behind the scenes through NCSU Libraries servers, you may not be able to use these resources online during this period.

How to get help

During the weekend, you can find links to useful workarounds for your research at the Libraries’ usual website address (www.lib.ncsu.edu). As always, library staff will be ready to help in-person, on the telephone, and by instant messaging.

New book, The Trevelyon Miscellany of 1608 facsimile

Design Library News - Thu, 2012-06-14 10:07

One of the greatest treasures in the collection of the Folger Shakespeare Library, The Trevelyon Miscellany is a 400-year-old hand drawn and lettered book created by the skilled scribe and patternmaker Thomas Trevelyon. Borrowing words and images from English and European woodcuts, engravings, broadsides, almanacs, emblem books, and the Bible, Trevelyon created a rich and fascinating encyclopedia of daily life and thought in Shakespeare’s England. Familiar scenes of domesticity and husbandry are intertwined with accounts of the rulers of England, descriptions of local fairs, the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge, astronomy according to Ptolemy, illustrations of the seasons, the nine muses and seven deadly sins, Old Testament history, household proverbs, alphabets, and embroidery patterns. A massive volume (18 inches tall and weighing over 17 pounds), this monumental work is now available to be studied and enjoyed in a gorgeous facsimile edition, thanks to state-of-the-art conservation and high-resolution digitization.

New today, Oscar Neimeyer Book

Design Library News - Thu, 2012-06-14 09:49

This stunning new book arrived today; come by and see it!  It will be in reference, as it’s quite large and rather fragile. From the publisher’s website: “The most complete and lavish exploration of one of the 20th century’s greatest and most influential architects. Includes sketches and original photography alongside contributions from Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, and Zaha Hadid.”

New books received in May
