The CVM Main Building lobby will be closed for carpeting beginning this Friday morning (Feb 28) with work continuing through Sunday, Mar 2.
Access to the Veterinary Medicine Library from Friday – Sunday will be through the glass double doors to the left of the main CVM entrance. Once inside the building, go straight ahead to the elevator/stairs and down one level to the Library. Signs will be provided to show the route to the library. Please call 919-513-6218 if you have any problems or questions about accessing the Library this weekend.
The Libraries needs your help in preparing for Fiscal Year 2014/2015 cuts to the collections budget of approximately $750,000. The list of potential journal cancellations is available for review at https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/collections/collectionsreview2014.
The site provides instructions on how to rank journals and submit your feedback by the deadline of March 21, 2014. There is also an FAQ available that addresses a number of potential questions about the review, including the Libraries’ commitment to document delivery for canceled titles and the timeline for the overall process.
Under the guidance of the University Library Committee (ULC), and in consultation with the NC State community, the NCSU Libraries is preparing for reductions to the FY 2014/2015 collections budget. Cuts to the Library budget this year and continued price increases for journals and databases above standard inflation rates require a review of current collecting to identify up to $750,000 in potential cuts. This review will include reductions to the book budget and a comprehensive review of all journal and database subscriptions.
Your participation is critical in making the best possible decisions during this difficult period. As evidenced by the over 11 million uses of the collection over the past year, the collection is essential to research and teaching. We appreciate your guidance and collaboration.
Dear CVM Community,
Many of you have already participated in discussions around the Libraries’ budget challenges and the need to reduce journal spending for 2015. If you have not heard about this yet, please see the background information that follows my short message.
The list of approximately 900 potential journal cancellations for your review and ranking is available as an online web form or as a downloadable spreadsheet (csv format). In addition to titles, publishers and cost, the data considered also includes journal impact factor, electronic usage downloads, and the numbers of NCSU citations to and publications in each title over the past 5 years. For guidelines and instructions for ranking and submitting your feedback, consult the Review Process web page or the “How to Use this Tool” link within the online web form.
Please provide your feedback and ranking of titles important to your work by Friday, March 21, 2014. If you have any questions, please email us or call me at 919-513-6219. Thank you for participating in this process.
Background information disseminated February 24:
The Libraries needs your help in preparing for FY 2014/2015 cuts to the collections budget of approximately $750,000 – about 7.5% of the 2013/2014 allocation. Projected budget reductions from the university, combined with expected inflation for journals and databases of $550,000 (at a 7% annual inflation rate), necessitate preparations for steep reductions to the collection. Reductions at this level will require a review of current library collections, including a comprehensive review of all journal and database subscriptions, to prepare for cancellations of approximately 625 journal titles for early 2015.
Staff from the Libraries met with the University Library Committee in October 2013 and the Departmental Library Representatives in November 2013 to discuss the strategy for reviewing titles and a communication plan for soliciting feedback from faculty, staff, and students. Library Representatives suggested and strongly endorsed a data informed process where subject specialists from the Libraries review usage data, citation and publication activity at the university, disciplinary trends, price, and impact factor to compile and present a potential cancellation list for review and ranking by the NC State community. Per the request of the Departmental Library Representatives, the list of approximately 900 potential journal cancellations is presented for review and ranking as an online web form or as a downloadable spreadsheet (csv format).
For guidelines and instructions for ranking and submitting your feedback, please consult the Review Process web page or the “How to Use this Tool” link within the online web form.
Your participation – by communicating with your colleagues, assessing potential approaches to these cuts, and reviewing proposed cancellations – is critical in making the best possible decisions during this difficult period. As evidenced by the over 11 million uses of the collection over the past year, the collection is essential to research and teaching. We appreciate your guidance in managing this crisis.
An FAQ is available that addresses a number of potential questions about the collections review including the Libraries’ commitment to document delivery for canceled titles, moving journal titles to electronic only to realize savings on subscriptions, and the timeline for the overall process.

On Tuesday, the American Library Association—the library world’s premier professional organization—awarded its prestigious Cutting Edge Technology Service Award to the NCSU Libraries’ My #HuntLibrary social media program. The ALA’s Cutting Edge Technology Service Award is presented annually to libraries that offer innovative, inventive, and interactive technologies to their communities.
Simply by capturing a moment in the library with Instagram and tagging the photo with #HuntLibrary, a community member’s image can become part of the NCSU Libraries’ digital archive and may be displayed on the huge video walls in the library itself. By offering community members the opportunity to dynamically share their engagement and enjoyment with the library, My #HuntLibrary enables the community to participate in the library’s opening and ongoing story. Further, My #HuntLibrary provides a unique bridge between digital and physical spaces as community members may gather in front of the image exhibition in the library and discuss display and other design concepts.
Since it launched in early 2013, My #HuntLibrary has received more than 3,200 images from more than 1,300 distinct users, and recorded more than 235,000 page views. This winter the Libraries made the platform behind My #HuntLibrary available as free open source software so that any library in the world can now easily develop their own Instagram-based tools.
The ALA has honored the NCSU Libraries with the award twice before, in 2010 for the Course Tools application that automates creation of easy-to-find library resources for every class at the university and in 2011 for its redesigned website.

The new James B. Hunt Jr. Library is now hosting an exhibit entitled “A Legacy of Leadership,” exploring the career of Governor Hunt, for whom the building is named. Governor Hunt has been a key force in bringing excellence to North Carolina’s educational system and was instrumental in making Centennial Campus a reality for NC State University.
As workers changed the muddy rut in front of his rural Wilson County home into a paved road, Jim Hunt saw the future. That thirteen-year-old boy first witnessed the legacy of visionary leadership, seeing the connection between “good-roads” legislation and his community’s new ability to get their crops to market.
Raised by his parents to value education and fairness, taught to lead by the Future Farmers of America, and exposed to wider learning at NC State and UNC, that young boy became the state’s youngest lieutenant governor at thirty-five, its governor at thirty-nine, and its only governor to serve four terms.
This exhibit celebrates that legacy of leadership and the profound impact it had on developing North Carolina into a model of education, technology, and growth in the New South. His is a legacy —as Governor Hunt has said himself many times—not about fighting over pieces of the pie. It’s about how to make the pie larger and how to ensure we all have a place at the table.
The exhibit can be seen in the Level 1 lobby of the Hunt Library during regular library hours.A Legacy of Leadership Through March 1, 2014

As it has since 1998, the NC Literary Festival will provide the area’s premier event at which audiences can hear, see, and interact with their favorite writers and artists. In addition to programs on fiction, non-fiction, young adult literature, poetry, and drama, the Festival will allow readers to experience and learn more about how transformative art forms such as graphic novels, comic books, and video games are shaping our literary experiences—and how new technologies such as e-readers and online publishing are changing how we encounter new ways to enjoy storytelling.
The majority of the NC Literary Festival will be held in NC State’s new James B. Hunt Jr. Library. As the “face of NC State in the 21st century,” this new space has generated international attention for its iconic architecture, its transformative technologies, and its simulation and large-scale visualization spaces that encourage and enable new forms of storytelling. The Hunt Library will serve as the festival’s thematic centerpiece, inspiring conversations about the future of reading and reading-based technologies.
Food trucks, easy parking, tents with activities for children and their parents, and a wide choice of favorite writers will provide a stimulating and fun gathering for all of us who value the future of reading.
The NC Literary Festival is hosted on a rotating basis by the academic libraries at NC State University, Duke University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The event is free and open to the public.
Laureate sponsors for the 2014 festival include PNC, Our State magazine, the Poe Endowment for Southern Americana, the Friends of the Library of North Carolina State University, and the State Library of North Carolina, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources that has administered grant funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act.
