University Housing recognized Katherine O’Clair, the librarian for the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Science (CAFES), as an outstanding faculty member for her work with the Living Learning Program.
This is a guest post by Kristen Thorp, the Student Assistant Coordinator for Access Services. In her spare time she manages the library’s Good Reads collection. She’s excited to receive her MLIS in June.
Remember video stores?
For those who may not, movies used to be acquired by driving to physical, brick and mortar stores in the neighborhood in order to borrow the hottest releases at a hefty cost per VHS tape. You would keep the movie for a set amount of days and then you had to drive back to the store to return it. What a pain!
Look up this summer and daydream!
The Cielo Project is a ceiling sculpture by Jeff Ponitz, assistant professor of architecture at Cal Poly, to be installed this summer near Julian’s Patisserie in Kennedy Library. Cielo is both a beautiful and functional solution to the acoustic issues on that part of the second floor, a popular collaborative space.
Cal Poly’s outstandingly creative students were rewarded today for their entries in the Kennedy Library and Orfalea College of Business’ 5th Annual Pitch Perfect Video Competition.
Students were asked to create 60-second videos around the theme “Imagine your Dream Library,” and the winners were selected by a panel of eight judges on their technical merit, imagination and clarity of vision. Orfalea College of Business Dean Dave Christy said each year he is impressed by the incredible level of talent and variety.
Grownups, children and makers of all ages used their smart phones to play a game inspired by carnival clowns at the first annual San Luis Obispo Mini Maker Faire on May 11, 2013.
