Collaboration at the James B. Hunt Jr. Library

Christie helps visualize research and collaboration at the Hunt Library

 In October of 2009, ground was broken on what would become the 221,000 square foot, state-of-the-art James B. Hunt Jr. Library, located in the heart of North Carolina State University’s research-focused Centennial Campus. Upon its completion, NC State’s administration, faculty, staff and students celebrated the grand opening of one of North America’s – if not the world’s – most technologically advanced campus libraries ever built. Helping achieve this recognition are several high-tech spaces and technologies integrated throughout the Hunt Library that have been designed to offer faculty, students and researchers open access to a myriad of innovative research and collaboration tools.

“I think of the building as one large integrated environment, and for me, that is one of the reasons why it was so important working with Christie. Its technologies, its engineers, the intellectual capital within Christie and the expertise in visualization systems and creating visual environments, really completely opened up that vision and made it possible to see how it all could happen.” Maurice York Head, Information Technology, NCSU Libraries
