Kristin AntelmanAssociate Director for the Digital LibraryNorth Carolina State UniversityMaurice YorkHead of Information TechnologyNorth Carolina State UniversityThis presentation introduces the technology vision behind the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, a new, 200,000 square foot building that opened in January 2013 at North Carolina State University (NCSU). The Hunt Library was designed to meet the challenge of re-envisioning library spaces as a platform for research. The library's goal is to engage researchers across disciplines by deploying broadly applicable technologies such as large-scale visualization, high resolution and 3D imagery, and interactive computing. These core technologies are expressed in physical spaces such as Immersion Theater, Game Lab, Media Production Studios, Teaching & Visualization Lab, and Creativity Studio. Through an inherent ability to reconfigure, re-purpose, and interchange components and infrastructure, the building's technology itself is designed to be an object of research, a sandbox for emerging technologies and a showcase for cutting edge applications. New segments of the faculty are engaging in deeper ways than ever before, including the launch of several research projects based around Hunt.More information about this presentation is available at Briefing SessionCoalition for Networked Information (CNI)Spring 2013 Membership MeetingApril 4-5, 2013San Antonio, Texas
