Libraries

NC State's library system is composed by several libraries. The D. H. Hill Library is NC State University's main library, located on the north campus. The Hunt Library is the university's second main library, located on Centennial Campus. The majority of research resources used by CRDM students is located in these libraries. The Harrye B. Lyons Design Library is another important asset to design research developed in the CRDM program. The library is located on the second floor of Brooks Hall, the main building of the College of Design. The library offers services just for Graduate Students, including work spaces, commons, labs and more.

Circuit Studio

The Circuit Research Studio is open to all CRDM students and faculty for research related projects at all phases of development, student meetings, and CRDM related social events. Some of the research areas supported include: Games, Mobile Communication, Digital Rhetoric, Digital Humanities, and Physical Computing.
