Hunt Library Staff
A list of all library staff.
The Library, housed temporarily in the Student Center Annex, provides a variety of study/learning options: small group study rooms, individual study carrels, collaborative tables and leisure reading areas. Students come to the library to connect, reflect and study in the quiet zone or in conversation areas. The Library will relocate to the new Student Union/Library building when that building is complete.
"Our union will be cutting edge," said Rodney Cruise, vice president for administration. "The combination of library and student center will marry student experience to academic success. The addition of other key departments like Career Services also reflect our strong commitment to job placement after graduation. From design to student experience, this building will become a best demonstrated practice in higher education."
With a circular design and a roof inspired by a bird-in-flight, the new student union will be completed in 2018. The top two levels of the 178,100-square-foot building will contain the university's new library. Downstairs, students can get a Starbucks coffee or a meal in a number of different venues. They can register for classes at one of 135 computer stations, relax in one of 470 lounge seats, work in one of 40 group study rooms, look out from the rooftop terrace or attend an event in the state-of-the-art 600-seat event center. It will be a one-stop shop for students. Follow the progress of the new Student Union/Library.
Hunt Library has six small study rooms located on the north wall of the library. The rooms are for the use of active ERAU-affiliated students, faculty, or staff for individual or two-person study purposes. Study rooms are available via an online reservation system for up to two hours per day. See the Study Room Use Policy for details.
