My #HuntLibrary is a participatory digital service designed to encourage visitors to document their Hunt Library experience using the social media platform Instagram. The development of this project coincided with the lead-up to the launch of NCSU's new James B. Hunt Jr. Library. My #HuntLibrary serves as an anchor activity for the Hunt Library opening events by helping to foster a sense of community ownership of the new building. Images from this crowdsourced documentation effort will be selected to become part of our permanent digital collections, allowing the NCSU community to contribute to the historical record of the Hunt Library through image submissions as well as the use of voting tools.
