Libraries

SUSAN NUTTER – Vice Provost and Director of Libraries Susan K. Nutter was named the 2005 Librarian of the Year by the national trade publication Library Journal. Shortly after she arrived from M.I.T., the NCSU Libraries ranked 101st compared to its peers in the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). Within a little over a decade, she led the Libraries’ climb to 27th place in North America – an unprecedented accomplishment in ARL history. During her tenure, the library became one of the first to remain open 24/7 during the academic year; was a pioneer in creating a Learning Technology Service to assist faculty in developing online courses; was the very first in the nation to hire an intellectual property attorney to help both librarians and faculty interpret how copyright law protects or limits their access to information; and won the first-ever (2000) “Excellence in Academic Libraries Award” in the university library category.
