During the period November 20-24, we will be doing the walk-through each hour counting the use of library spaces to see if the seating is adequate for high-demand study times. Come to the VML for studying comforts–-earplugs, snacks, and tissues; you can borrow headphones, blankets, or Snuggies. Have suggestions for how we can improve your library study environment? Please let us know!
Longer hours are available at the D.H. Hill Library and James B. Hunt Library. See all NCSU Libraries Hours.
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 ; email@example.com) or stop by the desk and let us know. Thank you for your patience.

Almost everyone who enters the Hunt Library immediately loves the chairs. Now NC State Institute for Advanced Analytics grad students Peter Baumgartner and Jake Frost, as well as Erica Shirts Frost, have created the Chairs of Hunt Library blog to explore their stories.
Where else are you going to learn that the Lyra stool appears in The Big Lebowski or that the Sayl chair takes its name “from the resemblance of a ship’s mainsail when you look at the chair from the side”?
Updates every Wednesday!
According to The News and Observer, the Virtual Paul’s Cross Project in the Hunt Library’s Teaching and Visualization Lab has “created a new approach to scholarly research that employs a host of disciplines and technologies.”
The project provides students, scholars, and the public with a 270-degree virtual experience of this central place in the religious, literary, political, and social life of 17th century London.
“We wanted to create new research tools – new tools for considering events of the past, new tools for, in effect, bringing words off the page – and for reintroducing ideas like performance and hearing instead of reading,” concluded Professor John Wall.
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.
