About the Project

Help us author the visual story of the Festival! Use your Instagram account to share your photos of Festival activities by tagging them #nclitfest. Your images will be displayed on the Hunt Library’s Art Wall during the festival and preserved in the University’s official digital archives. Go to http://go.ncsu.edu/nclitfest to browse recent photos and see our favorites.

Questions? Email: lentil@lists.ncsu.edu.

A Different Point of View

Have fun, be creative! Did you find something at the Festival you didn’t expect to see? Have you met a new author that has inspired you? Here are some ideas to get you going:

  • Take a “shelfie” of yourself with a book in the Hunt Library
  • Demonstrate your new talent at the Bookmaking Workshop
  • Get an action shot of a storyteller
  • Draw a literary scene on a whiteboard
  • Let us “see the flavors” from lunch at the food trucks
  • Find the most unusual author signature at the Festival

Terms of Use

The public is encouraged to contribute to #nclitfest Instagram Photos often by tagging multiple Instagram photos with the hashtag #nclitfest.

The photograph must obey all laws, including applicable copyright and privacy laws.

Archiving the #nclitfest Story

All approved images tagged #nclitfest will be included in the official North Carolina State University archives. When an image has been approved for inclusion in the NCSU Libraries archival collection, we will indicate that selection through a comment on that photo from the ncsulibraries Instagram account. The text of the comment reads:

"Thanks for your picture! The NCSU Libraries is archiving most Instagram photographs tagged #nclitfest to help document the story of the 2014 North Carolina Literary Festival. Your photo has been selected for addition to this archival collection. The archives document the history of NC State for future generations, and your image will become part of the story of the 2014 North Carolina Literary Festival. You will retain full ownership of any and all copyrights, but we ask that you grant the University a nonexclusive right to authorize all uses of these materials for non-commercial research, scholarly, or educational purposes or to publicize the Libraries, compatible with a Creative Commons Attribution, Non-commercial license. Please contact the Libraries Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center (http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/cdsc/contact) with any questions you have about this comment. No further action is required on your part."

Images selected for inclusion in the archives will be harvested by NCSU Libraries so that the archival digital object will reside on permanent NCSU Libraries storage infrastructure and not on Instagram servers. Users may contact NCSU Libraries at any time to request that the image be removed from our collections.
