Providing feedback for Libraries’ collections and journals review

NRL News - Tue, 2014-02-25 13:07

The Libraries needs your help in preparing for Fiscal Year 2014/2015 cuts to the collections budget of approximately $750,000. The list of potential journal cancellations is available for review at https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/collections/collectionsreview2014.

The site provides instructions on how to rank journals and submit your feedback by the deadline of March 21, 2014. There is also an FAQ available that addresses a number of potential questions about the review, including the Libraries’ commitment to document delivery for canceled titles and the timeline for the overall process.

Under the guidance of the University Library Committee (ULC), and in consultation with the NC State community, the NCSU Libraries is preparing for reductions to the FY 2014/2015 collections budget. Cuts to the Library budget this year and continued price increases for journals and databases above standard inflation rates require a review of current collecting to identify up to $750,000 in potential cuts. This review will include reductions to the book budget and a comprehensive review of all journal and database subscriptions.

Your participation is critical in making the best possible decisions during this difficult period. As evidenced by the over 11 million uses of the collection over the past year, the collection is essential to research and teaching. We appreciate your guidance and collaboration.

NCSU Libraries wins its third ALA award for cutting edge technology

On Tuesday, the American Library Association—the library world’s premier professional organization—awarded its prestigious Cutting Edge Technology Service Award to the NCSU Libraries’ My #HuntLibrary social media program. The ALA’s Cutting Edge Technology Service Award is presented annually to libraries that offer innovative, inventive, and interactive technologies to their communities.

Simply by capturing a moment in the library with Instagram and tagging the photo with #HuntLibrary, a community member’s image can become part of the NCSU Libraries’ digital archive and may be displayed on the huge video walls in the library itself. By offering community members the opportunity to dynamically share their engagement and enjoyment with the library, My #HuntLibrary enables the community to participate in the library’s opening and ongoing story. Further, My #HuntLibrary provides a unique bridge between digital and physical spaces as community members may gather in front of the image exhibition in the library and discuss display and other design concepts.

Since it launched in early 2013, My #HuntLibrary has received more than 3,200 images from more than 1,300 distinct users, and recorded more than 235,000 page views. This winter the Libraries made the platform behind My #HuntLibrary available as free open source software so that any library in the world can now easily develop their own Instagram-based tools.

The ALA has honored the NCSU Libraries with the award twice before, in 2010 for the Course Tools application that automates creation of easy-to-find library resources for every class at the university and in 2011 for its redesigned website.

New books received in December and January

Visit “A Legacy of Leadership” in the Hunt Library

The new James B. Hunt Jr. Library is now hosting an exhibit entitled “A Legacy of Leadership,” exploring the career of Governor Hunt, for whom the building is named.  Governor Hunt has been a key force in bringing excellence to North Carolina’s educational system and was instrumental in making Centennial Campus a reality for NC State University.

As workers changed the muddy rut in front of his rural Wilson County home into a paved road, Jim Hunt saw the future. That thirteen-year-old boy first witnessed the legacy of visionary leadership, seeing the connection between “good-roads” legislation and his community’s new ability to get their crops to market.

Raised by his parents to value education and fairness, taught to lead by the Future Farmers of America, and exposed to wider learning at NC State and UNC, that young boy became the state’s youngest lieutenant governor at thirty-five, its governor at thirty-nine, and its only governor to serve four terms.

This exhibit celebrates that legacy of leadership and the profound impact it had on developing North Carolina into a model of education, technology, and growth in the New South. His is a legacy —as Governor Hunt has said himself many times—not about fighting over pieces of the pie. It’s about how to make the pie larger and how to ensure we all have a place at the table.

The exhibit can be seen in the Level 1 lobby of the Hunt Library during regular library hours.

Author and Program Lineup for the 2014 NC Literary Festival

Four Pulitzers, a half dozen National Book and National Book Critics Circle awards, the creator of the Goosebumps series, great programs to help young people explore storytelling, and the latest developments in “The Future of Reading”—the 2014 North Carolina Literary Festival is proud to announce the author and program lineup for the April 3-6 gathering at NC State University and at venues throughout Raleigh.

Check out the lineup video!

Over 100 writers and events at the Festival will include:

  • Junot Díaz, recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award
  • Writer, musician, and screenwriter James McBride, author of the landmark memoir The Color of Water and 2013 winner of the National Book Award for The Good Lord Bird
  • Richard Ford, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Sportswriter and its sequels, Independence Day and The Lay of the Land
  • Lee Smith, North Carolina’s own winner of the O. Henry Award and the Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters
  • R. L. Stine, the “Stephen King” of children’s fiction
  • A host of activities for children provided by NC State’s College of Education
  • Bookmaking and comics workshops that will have you learning to bind your own book or creating your own biopic comic in less than an hour

A full listing can be found on the NC Literary Festival website.

As it has since 1998, the NC Literary Festival will provide the area’s premier event at which audiences can hear, see, and interact with their favorite writers and artists. In addition to programs on fiction, non-fiction, young adult literature, poetry, and drama, the Festival will allow readers to experience and learn more about how transformative art forms such as graphic novels, comic books, and video games are shaping our literary experiences—and how new technologies such as e-readers and online publishing are changing how we encounter new ways to enjoy storytelling.

The majority of the NC Literary Festival will be held in NC State’s new James B. Hunt Jr. Library.  As the “face of NC State in the 21st century,” this new space has generated international attention for its iconic architecture, its transformative technologies, and its simulation and large-scale visualization spaces that encourage and enable new forms of storytelling. The Hunt Library will serve as the festival’s thematic centerpiece, inspiring conversations about the future of reading and reading-based technologies.

Food trucks, easy parking, tents with activities for children and their parents, and a wide choice of favorite writers will provide a stimulating and fun gathering for all of us who value the future of reading.

The NC Literary Festival is hosted on a rotating basis by the academic libraries at NC State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  The event is free and open to the public.

Laureate sponsors for the 2014 festival include PNC, Our State magazine, the Poe Endowment for Southern Americana, the Friends of the Library of North Carolina State University, and the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources that has administered grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act.

The 14th most beautiful library in the world

The “Best Value Schools” website has honored the Hunt Library by ranking it as 14th in its listing of the world’s 50 most beautiful libraries:

Oslo-based architectural firm Snohetta made its mark in Raleigh in early 2013 with the opening of North Carolina State University’s James B. Hunt Jr. Library. The designers teamed up with local architects Pearce Brinkley Cease & Lee (now merged with Clark Nexsen) to develop the glimmering wonder, which is arguably as eco-minded as it is attractive. Thirty-one percent of the materials used in the library’s construction are recycled in origin, lighting is natural or solar energy based, and the majority of the timber was taken from sustainable forests. Both the facility’s green features and design have wowed industry insiders, and the striking structure was honored with an American Institute of Architects/American Library Association Library Building Award in 2013.

Hunt “Photo Journal” in The Independent

Citing its role as “architectural destination” for the Research Triangle community, the INDYweek has published a photo essay on the Hunt Library.

Also featured in the same edition—the Hunt Library’s green roof in an article about “Raleigh’s Green Acres.”
