Gregg Museum & NCSU Libraries Extend Popular Puppet Exhibit through February NCSU Libraries also hosts robotics demonstration on January 20

NRL News - Mon, 2015-12-14 14:58

(Raleigh, NC) – The NCSU Libraries is pleased to extend Life’s Little Dramas: Puppets, Proxies, and Spirits, an exhibit conceived and curated by NC State’s Gregg Museum of Art & Design, throughFebruary 28 in the D. H. Hill Gallery. Culled from a recent gift from John C. Henry, along with key works on loan, the exhibit hosts a complete Edwardian-era “Punch and Judy” troupe, Indonesian wayang kulit shadow puppets, marionettes from India, Sri Lanka, and the Czech Republic, and a working replica of a MARS rover robot.

Life’s Little Dramas presents objects that were purpose-built to be used as puppets and only hints at a phenomenon that is as vast and varied as humanity itself,” says Roger Manley, Director & Chief Curator of the Gregg Museum of Art & Design. “Puppetry has emerged in every inhabited part of the globe as one in the repertoire of activities that have made us human since the dawn of time.”

The NCSU Libraries will also host “Meet the Robots,” a special robotic demonstration and public talk for the whole family, on Wednesday, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. in the second-floor D. H. Hill Library Assembly Room.

Ken Boone, NC State alumnus and founder of KensRobots, will explain and demonstrate the model replica of the MARS rover built by the Triangle Amateur Robotics (TAR) club. The model rover, which features six-wheel drive, four-mode steering, and a transmitting camera, is part of the Life’s Little Dramas exhibit. Attendees will also get to meet the robotic humanoid “Ken” from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Eastern North Carolina Section Humanoid Robotics Project. A optional tour of the exhibit will follow the demonstration.

For more information visit the Gregg Museum’s website: www.ncsu.edu/gregg/exhibitions.html

The gallery is open during normal library hours: www.lib.ncsu.edu/hours/hill/general

The Gregg Museum of Art & Design is a collecting museum at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC. The collection includes 34,000 + objects, revealed through exciting exhibitions & programs and is free to all. As part of a research-extensive land-grant university, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design inspires creativity, innovation, and the expression of ideas.

NCSU Libraries offers “Internet of Things” support with help from the Office of Information Technology

NRL News - Mon, 2015-11-23 09:36

The Libraries now offer IoT hardware, workshops, and project support, as well as a special network in the D.H. Hill Makerspace for networked, reactive devices.

It is now easier to learn about and make automated, “smart” devices on the “Internet of Things” (IoT) at NC State. The Libraries have launched a program of support that includes lending devices such as WiFi-enabled Arduinos, “Getting Started” workshops, project support, and a special network in the D.H. Hill Library Makerspace.

The IoT is the multitude of digital, cloud-capable objects ranging from smart appliances, like automated thermostats and door locks, to embedded transponders that store a patient’s medical data, to field sensors that help gather research data. Globally, an estimated 20 billion objects will be part of the IoT by the end of the decade.

IoT networked devices, including those made with easy-to-learn platforms like Arduino and Particle, collect and report data with other devices, services, and sites. These devices have difficulty accessing the on-campus ncsu, eduroam, and ncsu-guest networks because of their authentication requirements. The NCSU Office of Information Technology has partnered with the NCSU Libraries to eliminate this barrier by launching the MakerspaceIOT Wifi network, which addresses security concerns while enabling users to be on the cutting edge. To do so, the network only allows connections to specific “whitelisted” IoT services or useful sites including Google Drive, Twitter, Dropbox, LittleBits, Temboo, Twilio, and ncsu.edu.

The MakerspaceIOT network is only available in the D.H. Hill Makerspace. More on the network and the Libraries’ support for campus innovation with the IoT can be found at our new dedicated site: www.lib.ncsu.edu/do/iot

The NCSU Libraries Makerspace program encompasses spaces and services at the D.H. Hill and Hunt libraries, available to all NCSU students, faculty, and staff. Visit go.ncsu.edu/make for more information.

Design Library CLOSED 11/23, 11/24, 11/25, 11/26

Design Library News - Wed, 2015-11-18 12:10

The Design Library will be closed on Monday 11/23, Tuesday 11/24, and Wednesday 11/25 for duct cleaning.  We will also be closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, 11/26.  We will be open on Friday 11/27 from 1pm to 5pm, and Saturday 11/28 from 1pm to 5pm, and will resume regular hours on Sunday, 11/29.

From 11/23 to 11/25, while the Design Library is closed, Barbara Brenny will be working in the IT lab in the College of Design. If you need something urgently from the library, she will be able to access the library while the people cleaning the ducts are at lunch or after they stop working in the afternoon.  You can email her at babrenny@ncsu.edu or call her at 919-515-2207, which is the Design Library phone number, and which she will have forwarded to her cell phone.

Barbara will also check the book return on the breezeway, so you can continue to return books there, or you can return them at other libraries on campus.

No library deliveries will happen while the library is closed.  If you are expecting a book from ILL or Tripsaver, you can call Rob Rucker in D.H. Hill Library at (919) 513-3657, or the Ask Us desk at D.H. Hill Library at 919-515-3364, and someone will search the items waiting to be delivered to the Design Library for your item, and put it on hold for you at D.H. Hill Library.

This week’s event at the College of Design featuring items from T. C. Howard’s Papers on Synergetics was a hit!  Bill Ballenger, along with T. C. Howard’s daughter Katrina Fairley, offered insights into the workings and history of Synergetics. Guest lecturer Nina Rappaport came to the mid-day event in the Rotunda and later that day gave a lecture on the Vertical Urban Factory as a part of the lecture series at the School of Architecture.
