dc.description.abstractThe James B. Hunt Jr. Library aspires to be a building unlike any other at NC State. As an iconic building for the university, it embodies the entrepreneurial aspirations of the institution. A forward-looking and courageous approach to technology stands at the center of Hunt Library's ability to realize this ambitious vision. While the rapid pace of technological change cautions us not to be too prescriptive about which technologies will be in use by 2012, three trends are evident that will be explored in this document: ever greater bandwidth and the continued reduction in the cost of computing cycles and storage will enable expanded uses of computing-intensive applications such as large-scale visualization; user interfaces are shifting from mediated to touch-based, facilitating more powerful and intuitive engagement with information and data; and, finally, computing and communication functions are converging in mobile devices, enabling new possibilities for people to interact with information, spaces and each other. The Hunt Library also presents us with the opportunity to expand our thinking about "library" technologies, pushing us away from our historical focus on tools that support access to, and management of, our print-based and electronic collections, and toward tools and new ways of thinking that will position the library closer to the core mission of the university, knowledge creation and learning.en_US
