The Libraries want to make sure our spaces and technology meet your needs. Twice a semester library staff walk around each hour to count where people are sitting and whether desktop or laptop computers are being used. We use an iPad application developed here at NCSU (see below). The data helps us work with the Vet Med Library Committee and CVM to decide on placement of desktop machines and furniture.
DVM finals week is our heaviest usage time. During this week, we will take these hourly counts from November 20 – November 24 to compare this use with our regular usage which is being taken from November 6-10. We try very hard not to disturb you when taking these counts, but we understand that you notice when we are looking at you and entering the counts. Please be assured that it is just a headcount and no other identifying information is recorded.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us (919-513-6218 ; firstname.lastname@example.org) or stop by the desk and let us know. Thank you for your patience.

Two recently inventoried collections with newly published finding aids are the records for North Carolina State University: A Narrative History and North Carolina State University: A Pictorial History.
Both books were commissioned by the Alumni Association to correspond with the University’s centennial anniversary in 1987 and reflect the transitions it had made from the North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts to the modern North Carolina State University. Both books give a unique perspective into the history of the University. A Narrative History is written by historian Alice Elizabeth Reagan, and A Pictorial History is written by NCSU Department of History professors Murray Scott Down and Burton F. Beers.
For more information on this collection or to view the materials, please contact the Special Collections Research Center.

This year’s “Fall Special” at the Design Library was a success, drawing in keenly interested individuals who were eager to learn more about items in Special Collections relating to architecture, art and design, landscape architecture, and graphic design. Various faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduates from the College of Design as well as other interested members of the community came to see some of the featured selections.
Dean Marvin Malecha attended the event (see above, middle photograph) and reviewed some of his preliminary drawings on napkins for “The Point,” the new Chancellor’s Residence that he designed. He reflected on the design process and how he worked to create the final, successful version of the home. Visitors were intrigued by the fact that he was able to use airline-issued cloth napkins to work through his early design concepts. These items created by Malecha and featured at this event are just a fraction of the materials that are available for study in his papers. The finding aid for the Marvin J. Malecha Papers can be found here: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/findingaids/mc00391
Visitors were also eager to learn more about the drawings selected for display that were created by Matthew Nowicki (1910-1950) for the Indian city of Chandigarh. Before the French architect Le Corbusier was assigned the large-scale project of designing the new capital city of Punjab, Matthew Nowicki (along with Albert Mayer) initially worked on the modernist design. Nowicki spent two months in India absorbing the local culture and developing a number of detailed sketches for structures to be built in Chandigarh. On his return from India to the United States, Nowicki was killed in a plane crash near Cairo. His premature death has been a true loss to modernist architecture. To view the Nowicki finding aid, go to: http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/findingaids/mc00190
A number of guests also inquired about digitized architectural drawings in Special Collections. To view some of these digitized resources in Special Collections, go to the following link and begin searching by clicking on “Architecture”: http://d.lib.ncsu.edu/collections/
We are happy to announce the opening of the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library. In collaboration with Indiana University, NCSU Libraries invites you to browse a collection of some of the most important scientific visualizations ever produced. Visitors to the exhibit can use an iPad to choose from 80 powerful examples of knowledge domain mapping, novel location-based cartographies, data visualizations, and science-inspired art works.
The exhibit runs now through October 27th, and is featured in the iPearl Immersion Theater on the second floor of the Hunt Library.
Individually and as a whole, the maps of Places & Spaces allow data to tell fascinating stories which both the scientist and the layperson can understand and appreciate. Inspiration is waiting for you at the Hunt Library!
Location: Harrye B. Lyons Design Library, Brooks Hall

The Library’s Community Service Committee is holding an ongoing food drive for Feed the Pack, the NC State food pantry, and we invite you to participate. A donation bin is located in the Natural Resources Library, near the entrance.The food pantry appreciates all donations, but they do ask that we try to stay away from canned green beans and corn. It’s best to have a large variety of items available in order to better serve our campus community. A list of donation suggestions is below. Donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
More information on Feed the Pack can be found here.
