The Libraries' high-density annex opened in summer 2018, providing a climate-controlled environment for the university's growing library collection of books and other materials, while freeing up needed space in Mullins Library, the main research library on campus. The 27,000-foot storage facility can accomodate approximate 1.8 million volumes when filled to capacity.
Materials are paged from the Library Annex multiple times each weekday. You can request items from the Library Annex by clicking one of these buttons when viewing a record in the library catalog:
