- North Carolina St. University Vice Provost and Director of Libraries, Susan Nutter, Announces Retirement
infoDOCKET reports that “Susan Nutter, vice provost and director of the NCSU Libraries, has announced that she is stepping down this fall.
Nutter arrived at NC State in 1987 with a vision of creating a world-class library on Centennial Campus. Her vision was realized with the opening of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library in January 2013.
“I am honored to have had the opportunity to serve NC State for the past three decades,” Nutter said. “The NCSU Libraries and the students and faculty of NC State will always hold a special place in my heart, and I look forward to seeing the Hunt Library, the D.H. Hill Library and the other libraries around campus continue to influence research, teaching, learning and service in higher education for years to come.”
During her 30 years at NC State, Nutter was instrumental in guiding the NCSU Libraries to being the first university library to win the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. Nutter was named Library Journal’s Librarian of the Year and received the Hugh Atkinson Memorial Award — which recognizes a leader who has “contributed significantly to improvements in the area of library automation, library management, and/or library development or research.”
Last year, Nutter received the ACRL Academic/Research Librarian of the Year Award, while the NCSU Libraries was awarded an IMLS National Medal for Library Service from former First Lady Michelle Obama. Nutter was foundational to the creation of the Hunt Library, which was awarded the 2014 Stanford Prize for Innovation in Research Libraries, the 2014 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Education Facility Design Award, the 2014 American Library Association (ALA) Library Interior Design Award, and the 2013 AIA/ALA Building Award for distinguished accomplishment in library architecture. It was also named a Library Journal New Landmark Library in 2016.
