Nutter Wins National Recognition
Susan K. Nutter, vice provost and director of libraries at NC State, is the 2016 ACRL Academic/Research Librarian of the Year. The award, sponsored by YBP Library Services, recognizes an outstanding member of the library profession who has made a significant national or international contribution to academic/research librarianship and library development.
Nutter will receive a $5,000 award during the ACRL President’s Program on Saturday, June 26, at the 2016 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida.
Nutter was the driving force behind the planning, development and construction of the acclaimed Hunt Library on Centennial Campus. Widely praised for its innovative services, technologies and use of space, the Hunt Library reflects Nutter’s longstanding belief that the priorities and practices of the university must shape the spaces and offerings of the library. The Hunt Library won the Stanford Prize for Innovation in Research Libraries in 2014 and serves a model for other institutions looking to develop innovative learning and research spaces.
