Fall 2019 A/V Geeks at the Hunt Library

Fall 2019 A/V Geeks at the Hunt Library

The A/V Geeks at the Hunt Library series kicks off its fall 2019 slate of Friday night screenings with “Your University and You” on Friday, Aug. 23 from 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at the Hunt Library’s Teaching and Visualization Lab. Film archivist extraordinaire and NC State alumnus Skip Elsheimer joins forces with NC State librarians to present and discuss unusual and exemplary classroom instructional films, newsreels, and documentaries spanning the last 80 years.

Events in this series are free and open to the public.

“For the Fall 2020 semester, we are highlighting the unique expertise in the Libraries. Our diverse group of librarians features experts in subjects ranging from NC State history to fashion design and textiles, animal rights and welfare, and much more,” says Virginia Ferris, Outreach and Engagement Program Librarian. “Their knowledge will spark discussions of films from the A/V Geeks collection, as well as from the Libraries' University Archives.”

For the first screening, Elsheimer has mined University Archives footage to take you back in time to explore the sights and sounds of NC State’s past. Subsequent screenings throughout the semester delve into animals, fashion, and—wait for it—libraries!
