IMC summer feature – TV time!

Back in the early 80s, the advent of cable tv gave us a lot of channels but not a lot of good programming (although MTV did play music videos). As the creative class slowly filled the void, production costs plummeted with the development of inexpensive digital workstations and cameras. The resulting synchronicity of creativity and processing power produced an explosion of content that moved the concept of television broadcasting into the realm of video narrowcasting. Although the content has been spread over many delivery vehicles, the library chooses to focus on the high-definition, full-fidelity and fully-legal medium of DVD (you can checkout a DVD drive for your laptop from the IMC).  Below is a link to some of our favorites – in no particular order.  Enjoy!

Spring Thesis Desk Lottery

Random numbers for the Senior thesis desk lottery will be drawn from the official 470 list.  If you are a senior, but are not yet registered for 470, and want to be included in the drawing, please come to the circulation desk and have your name added to the lottery list by Monday, February 11.  Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Studio Art, and Psychology majors are not eligible for thesis desks in the Library.

The list of numbers will be posted Tuesday, February 12 along with a map of thesis desk locations, so that you can have preferences in mind before the actual selection.

The choosing of desks will begin at noon on Wednesday, February 13 in Library 17.  You or your proxy must be present when your name is called.  Lottery numbers are not transferable.

NOTE:  Some desks, as indicated on the map, will be shared.  In order to help create the most pleasant sharing arrangement possible, the person with the better number may bring in as a partner another senior on the list who has a lower number.  Please make those arrangements before the noon time selection and let us know that is your plan when your name is called.
