Spooky books & more at the SLC Libary!

2 / 13 spooky books, carried by skeletons. You can take the books home!

13 Spooky Books πŸ‘»

Be afraid, be very afraid, and well-read! 13 spine-tingling books and 13 skeletons lurk the haunted hallways of Raushenbush Castle. But to reach them, you must first get past the worm-eaten guardians at the castle drawbridge. Once inside the walls, enter the macabre and bizarre Witch’s Hat Stairwell, if you dare! Gaze with horror at the Iron Book Maiden and its tortured and imprisoned DEI title. And for the truly brave, exit through the Dungeon of the Hideous Autodidact. And remember: Read slow. Die old. Leave a beautiful corpus!

13 Spooky Books is on display through November 5th

Crafting with Data: Creative Environmental Storytelling

πŸ“· : A place Digital Humanities Librarian Claudia found inspiration.

Monday, Nov. 13, 3-4:30, Lower Level classroom E1

In this workshop, we will be playing with environmental data and creative ways of telling stories about the environment. We will explore how data objects made using common crafts materials like paper, yarn, blocks, etc., can convey information about the environment by making abstract concepts tangible.

Data, inspiration, and basic crafts materials will be provided, but you are encouraged to bring whatever media and/or data you are most familiar using. This session is open to students, faculty, and staff. If you are interested in attending but cannot make it at the scheduled time, let us know by emailing [email protected]. Depending on interest, we may schedule a second session.​​
