        Subject: Installation of the Virtual Paul's Cross Project


We have opened an installation of the Virtual Paul's Cross Project in the
technology-rich Teaching and Visualization Lab at NC State University's
Hunt Library.

The Lab has 10 projectors that create a seamless 270 degree image and 21
speakers that create an acoustic experience of Paul's Churchyard during a
sermon by John Donne on November 5th, 1622.
