3 new iMacs have replaced the mac mini’s near the Crouch Circulation Desk.
The biggest news is that all three iMacs have most of the same software available in the META lab a few feet away (they will not have Pyware) INCLUDINGMIDI keyboards for use with programs like Finale and GarageBand.
… the iMacs in the META lab will be upgraded very soon as well :)!
We have another new piece of equipment to crow about! This beautiful, museum-quality exhibit case that has been provided through the generosity of the Baylor University Women’s Association of Houston.
We will use this case, which has a much taller display area than the old one, to display treasures from our Special Collections and works of visual art. What would you like to see? Suggestions are welcome.
The CFAL staff is excited about receiving this new compact shelving unit. We have some of these for videos, but this is the first for CDs. It will provide some much-needed growth space for our ever-expanding collection of recordings. Over the next few days, we will be moving and reconfiguring the entire CD collection, but should still be able to retrieve any that you request.
Mari Eckstein Gower’s beguiling creation Lost in the Book of Kellsgraces the Crouch Fine Arts display case through the remainder of summer 2013. Drawing inspiration from the original Book of Kells (8th century illuminated manuscript), Gower fascinates with intricate patterns, imaginative creatures and poetic verse.
Art and Architecture in Video provides a collection of documentaries and interviews illustrating the history, theory and practice of art, design and architecture. Find it under the E-resources tab from the Baylor Libraries homepage.
The ARTstor Travel Awards are back and they are now open to undergraduate students! This year the theme is cities: their histories and development, their depictions in art and documentation, their architecture, their ruins, their governments, their peoples, their myths.
Create an ARTstor image group or groups and a single essay of 500 words or less that creatively introduces us to a city or cities we did not know or reveals an intriguing aspect of the cities we do know. Five winners— college and graduate students, scholars, curators, educators, and librarians in any field—will receive $1,500 each to help support travel-related educational and scholarly activities. Winning essays and other selected submissions will be published on the ARTstor Blog, ARTstor website, and via our social media channels. Deadline: Friday, May 17.
Several items from the Artist Book Special Collection will be on display in the Crouch Fine Arts Library on a rotating basis during the remainder of the Spring 2013 Semester. Come by to see these interesting creations and have an opportunity to experience them personally on Sundays at 3 pm by appointment.
Book artists, Peter and Donna Thomas, will speak in the Allbritton Foyer of Moody Library on Friday, March 22, 2013 at 2:30 p.m. Their lecture is entitled “The Future of the Physical Book in the Digital Age,” and will discuss the book as a work of art.
Peter and Donna Thomas travel around the country in their very own gypsy wagon, giving lectures and workshops on papermaking, book arts and more. They plan to park their wagon outside of Moody Library during the afternoon of the lecture to allow for questions and individual interaction.
Both Peter and Donna Thomas are natives of California and currently reside in Santa Cruz, California. They established their first private printing press in 1976 with a goal to “create books in the tradition of the great private presses: limited editions, made of the finest materials and produced with the highest standards of quality.”
Today they travel all over the United States and abroad lecturing about the art of book making, including participating in countless renaissance fairs and exhibitions.
The Thomases hope to reach a diverse academic audience while speaking on Baylor’s campus and invite students and faculty to join them for their discussion.
More information on the Thomases can be found at their website. For questions about the event, please contact email@example.com.
