Jerome Library, 1967-Present

A new university library was constructed for a cost of $4.6 million, with the capacity to hold 640,000 books and with seating for 2300 persons. The general stacks were to be an open system, allowing patrons to browse and select their own books, and to take advantage of the space for quiet study. The new library officially opened in November 1967, and was dedicated as the Jerome Library in 1982 in honor of President William T. Jerome III.
