Help NYPL build the geospatial library of the future!

This means overlaying digital images of historic maps onto a contemporary digital map (similar to Google Maps), transforming them into tiles of a virtual atlas.

Whether you’re writing an essay, a business letter, a research report, copy for an ad agency or a short story, writers go through a process to get to an excellent finished product. This workshop will teach you how to go through that process – and the three stages of the writing process: 1) pre-writing (asking the right questions about audience, purpose, and tone, clarifying your objective, brainstorming possible ideas, and pre-thinking your main point, plus organizing your ideas) 2) drafting (your first draft) and 3) revision/editing/proofreading, which is the final part of the writing process. This workshop will teach you how to get a professional product – whether it be an essay, letter, personal statement, feature article, or short story. It will also teach you strategies to overcome writer’s block and come up with creative ideas. We will also learn group techniques for generating ideas and for composition.

If you haven’t lived the best day of your life yet, says Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh, chances are that you never will. We wait for happiness to come to us from external events, things, and people. The good news is that if we can truly awaken to each moment of our daily life we can experience happiness right here and now, no matter our situation. With mindfulness, we can transform the necessary “mud” of our lives into lotus flowers of happiness, at any moment. The Blue Cliff monastic community, in partnership with Global Spiritual Life’s MindfulNYU, will offer an interactive evening of practice and teaching through sitting and walking meditations, a talk and a Q+A.
