REBLOG: The #HuntLibrary Story. An amazing, progressive, and technology-rich structure from a fellow UNC system library!

I found this series of videos about James B. Hunt Jr. Library at North Carolina State University to be really inspiring. In particular I like the reinforcement about importance of how a space is experienced. I do see some potential challenges in ongoing maintenance over time (e.g. 80 different types of chairs) and I wonder what happens when the BookBot is having a bad day. But overall the planners and designers clearly had savvy, vision and passion and the ability to get past some typical barriers as they took an important leap forward. Good for them!!
