Downtown Raleigh has a variety of law libraries within walking distance of the conference hotel. On Thursday afternoon from 3:15 to 5:15, SEAALL attendees have the opportunity to visit several of these libraries, selecting one of two tours. Each tour is limited to 20 participants - you may sign up when you register for the conference.
Tour A: Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice and Smith Anderson*
Tour B: Campbell Law School and the NC Supreme Court Library
On Saturday afternoon after the conference, you may want to explore the James B. Hunt Jr. Library (Hunt Library) located at North Carolina State University’s Centennial Campus. Because the Hunt Library does not offer any afternoon tours, you would be on your own, but the experience is well worth the short drive from downtown.
The Hunt Library is NCSU’s newest library, primarily serving the academic disciplines housed on Centennial Campus: textiles, engineering, and science. It opened in 2013 to national and international acclaim.
The Library has many interesting features, including a robot-driven bookBot, an automated book delivery system that delivers books in minutes with a click in the online catalog. Watch the bookBot in action through a glass wall on the first floor, as four robots dart up and down enormous aisles to pinpoint and retrieve materials.
TOURING ON YOUR OWN:
Hourly parking ($2/hour) is available in the Poulton Pay Lot across the street from Hunt Library. Parking spots are numbered, and there is a pay station that accepts debit and credit cards only (no cash). If no parking is available at the Poulton lot, the next available paid parking area can be found in the Partners Way deck, which is a five minute walk from Hunt.
