Susan Nutter: North Carolina State University Libraries': Librarian of the Year 2005
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v130 n1 p50 Jan 2005
After entering as a "bit player" among feudal lords, she became an honored, celebrated campus leader. Building and repositioning the library, Susan Nutter brought it from what one senior professor called "an embarrassment" to its current role and site, a central force and place in the academic enterprise at North Carolina State University (NCSU), Raleigh. As Vice Provost and director of libraries, Nutter "has taken a middling library and made it into a model for the entire profession," says her colleague Carla Stoffle, dean of libraries at the University of Arizona. "The NCSU libraries have come to be recognized across our campus as vital for the university's success," says NCSU provost James Oblinger. Despite these and many more achievements, she "supports and gives credit generously to others and is unduly modest about her own contributions," says Karin Wittenborg, university librarian at the University of Virginia. This article is a brief analysis of the positive influence Susan Nutter has had on the NCSU libraries.
