The QC Makerspace is off to a roaring start this semester. The Makerspace is part of a 5 year, multimillion dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to incorporate its project-based learning into QC’s STEM classes, in order to improve undergraduate interest and retention in STEM programs. Congratulations to Head of Makerspace Nick Normal and his co-recipients!
The Makerspace also has a new team member, Student Aide Piphat “Filmy” Cheng. Filmy is in his final year studying graduate- level Photonics (Applied Physics), and is also a remarkable photographer.
All of us at the library welcome Filmy, and look forward to a great semester of new projects and events in the Makerspace. Stop by Rosenthal 101 and learn more!
How do you use data in your teaching and learning? How do you manage your research data? Queens College Library is interested in your feedback for a PSC CUNY funded online research survey. https://bit.ly/QCDataServices

Annie Tummino and Rachel Kahn of QC Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives have 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.
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!
