This Fall, the Cary Graphic Arts Collection joins virtual reality! Thanks to a Breakthru Grant from the Rochester Regional Library Council, Steve Galbraith, Curator of the Cary Collection, and Shaun Foster, Associate Professor in 3D Design, will create a proof of concept for the Virtual Cary Collection. It will allow a researcher using a virtual reality system to enter the Collection and interact with a 3D model of a 17th-Century English hornbook in ways that would not be possible with the physical artifact. Ultimately, they hope to add more virtual artifacts and integrate the Virtual Cary Collection into classes at @rittigers, enhancing the research and teaching experiences supported here in the library.
Check out this great story from the main campus! RIT School of Photographic Arts and Sciences professor Greg Halpern took a photo of Canadian PM Justin Trudeau for Bloomberg Businessweek's May issue. #rit#ritcroatia
Busy night for the Rescue Company last night.
Around 0230 Rescue 4 was dispatched into North Versailles as the RIT team on a residential fire.
After clearing, the Rescue and ambulance was then dispatched to a tractor trailer rollover with a heavily entrapped driver. #rescue#fire#RIT#mvfc4#liveins#firedepartment#rescuecompany
