I gave a talk to the VALA AGM earlier this week on our Artist-in-Residence Program: the thinking behind it, who has been involved, what has been produced and why we think it is a good thing. Below are the slides I used and in many of the images there are links that take you much deeper into the works created by those artists.
Here is a large set of images from the new James B. Hunt Jr Library at North Carolina State University (NCSU). I was fortunate enough to attend the second Designing Libraries Conference that was held this year in the Hunt Library. It was massively over-subscribed by librarians from all over North America and various parts of the rest of the world, such is its reputation already.
In his latest post "James B. Hunt Jr. Library, NCSU" (11 Nov), Mal Booth the University Librarian shares his photos and a video from his tour of the Library at the North Carolina State University, whilst attending a Designing Libraries Conference.
