Flyspace was designed for students, faculty and staff to promote group learning and collaboration. Two Flyspace rooms are located in the Talley Student Center basement, in the corner of the Wolves Den dining room. Each room can accommodate approximately six people; the rooms are small by design, but each comes equipped for every meeting need: table and chairs; phone and white boards; two computers with monitors mounted on articulating arms; connectivity for data, audio and video; connections for four laptops and wireless; a large flat-panel display and software productivity tools.

The great location, comfort and technology make Flyspace the perfect place for academic or extracurricular collaboration. And with open scheduling, via the Web, you can reserve Flyspace -- for whatever, whenever. Don't mis this exciting opportunity to use this great collaborative workspace.

Flyspace was created through a collaborative partnership of Information Technology Division, LITRE, NCSU Libraries, and Talley Student Center.

If you are interested in visiting other collaborative spaces on campus, learn about the NCSU Libraries Collaboratory at:


Classtech is the Information Technology Division's support unit for classroom technologies on the NC State University campus. We offer a variety of services to everyone from architects and engineers to instructors and students.


LITRE, or Learning In a Technology Rich Environment (the acronymn is pronounced like the British spelling of "liter" -- lētər), is the over-arching theme for the NC State "Quality Enhancement Plan." LITRE’s ultimate purpose is to improve student learning. LITRE’s primary strategy is to establish an ongoing, systematic investigation into the effectiveness of technology-based innovations to improve learning.

Digital Media Lab

The Digital Media Lab provides assistance to NC State students, faculty, and staff in creating digital materials and converting all types of media to digital formats. The lab offers a diverse mix of scanners allowing the conversion of documents, slides, photographs, and microforms to digital format. Oversize posters and signs can be printed in color on the large-format plotter.

Hardware and software for converting analog audio and video to digital and creating digital audio and video clips is available within a soundproofed Studio. Meanwhile, the Collaboratory is a room near the Digital Media Lab where small groups can practive and collaborate on projects at two workstations with large flat-panel screens.

Both the Studio and Collaboratory may be reserved in advance for periods of four hours.

All of these resources are located on the second floor of the D.H. Library's eas wing, in the Learning and Research Center for the Digital Age. For more information, call (919) 513-3855 or visit
