  • Hunt Library To Be Test Bed for New Technologies

    NC State University library officials say they intend to transform how students learn and create in the 21st century, using the new library under construction on Centennial Campus as a test bed. 


    Getting a jumpstart on this transformation, the library system was recently awarded a $100,000 grant through the U.S. Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) to create a new “Technology Sandbox,” where students will be about to test and use large-scale displays and gesture-based computing technologies. The testing area is under construction in the D.H. Hill Library, the university’s current library on the main campus. Once the 139,000-square-foot James B. Hunt, Jr. Library opens in 2012, the Sandbox will be available in that space as well.
