In making the award to the Hunt Library, North Carolina State University, Richard Luce, university librarian at the University of Oklahoma, praised the Hunt Library as “brilliantly conceived and implemented.” He served on a panel of judges that included librarians from Oxford, the University of Virginia, Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Library of Congress.

With its colourful and comfortable study spaces, automated bookBot and state-of-the-art teaching and visualisation labs, the Hunt Library is a model for other research libraries, Luce said.

“As libraries think deeply about and plan for the implications of the paradigm shifts we are experiencing, the Hunt Library can serve as exemplar, both in terms of cyber-infrastructure and associated services, as well as in facility planning,” he said.
