Annie Tummino and Rachel Kahn of QC Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives have just published an article in The Academic Archivist, the blog of the College and University Archives Section of the Society of American Archivists (SAA). “Campus Unrest at 50: Commemorating the Legacy of Dissent at Queens College” is a wonderful introduction to the history and impact of student activism at Queens College in the 1960s, and a behind-the-scenes look at how the current exhibition is informing scholarship and instruction today. The exhibition is on view in Rosenthal Library through December 15, 2019, next to the Tanenbaum Room on Level 3.
The QC Makerspace hosted the first meeting of the new Knights Robotics Club this week, and it was a great success! Stop by the Makerspace (Room 101 on the library’s 1st floor) to learn how you can get involved and learn the fundamentals of robotics.
Vintage clothes? Unique and funky. Antique furniture? Could be gorgeous. But no one wants to use a ‘classic’ computer in the college library! Rosenthal Library is installing 75 brand-new computer workstations. Come down to the 2nd floor computer labs and check them out!
