- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
The Library celebrated Parents’ Weekend on October 18th with a trip back in time—with a little help from a camera and Photoshop, of course! Staff from the Gelardin New Media Center set up a greenscreen backdrop for taking photographs. The subjects were then inserted into various photos from the University Archives: a photograph of the baseball team in 1884, Healy in 1900, or the basketball team in 1942. Check out some of the results on our Facebook page and see if you can spot the 21st century interlopers!
Want to do this at home? You can! Gelardin has many different kinds of cameras available for checkout to any student, faculty or staff member. A wide selection of Archives photos are available in DigitalGeorgetown and many of Gelardin’s computers are equipped with Photoshop. Not sure how to use Photoshop? Sign up for a class or take one yourself on lynda.com and you’ll be an expert.
