Curbed.com, the design and real estate online site, declares that the Hunt Library “may even be enough to reseat MVRDV’s Book Mountain as world’s most awesome library.”
Raleigh-based Scientific American blogger Scott Huler explores the evolution of the role of libraries embodied in the Hunt Library.
Arguing that while it “will not carry passengers into Outer Space,” this N&O editorial explains that “the new library is beyond state of the art . . . . May it live long and prosper.”
The new Hunt Library enables NC State students, faculty, and partners “stay on the forefront of the future with direct access to the tools of tomorrow” and, according to News 14 Carolina’s Linnie Supal, is “giving North Carolina worldwide appeal.”
In a preview of the January 2 opening, Jay Price from the News & Observer writes that the Hunt Library “may well be the most advanced library in the world.”

Governor Hunt’s hometown paper, The Wilson Times, conducts an extensive interview with the former governor and places the Hunt Library into perspective as a centerpiece for Centennial Campus and a step forward in North Carolina’s history and economic development.
“If you can draw it, you can make it!” That’s the promise of the Makerspace on the 4th floor of the Hunt Library. Here you can create working prototypes, architectural models, and other objects with 3D printers, a 3D scanner, and a laser cutter. Makerspace is just one of the many tools that make the new Hunt Jr. Library the library of the future.Please upgrade your browser

The librarians at the Veterinary Medicine Library, other NCSU subject librarians, and the Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center can help you achieve compliance with the mandate to make research related to your NIH funding available through PubMed Central. We can:
- Figure out whether you are already in compliance with the mandate for public access to your NIH-funded research
- Guide you in reviewing the publication agreements for your future and past articles to see whether or not your publishers will be making your work available, or whether you will need to directly submit your manuscripts
- Work with you to create or maintain a My Bibliography account in MyNCBI that contains both your articles indexed by PubMed, and any funded research articles published in journals not indexed by PubMed
- Help you or your delegate submit published manuscripts to PubMed Central when needed
- Help you or your delegate use your ERA Commons account for linking your PubMed Central article IDs to your grant progress reports
- Help train your students or collaborators or delegates to assist with maintaining your funded research projects’ compliance
Visit the NCSU Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center website for more information on whether the NIH Public Access Policy applies to your research or information on author agreements with publishers about depositing manuscripts in PubMed Central.
