A Grand Opening — Celebrating the Establishment of the Elmer L. Andersen Library
Presented by Tim Johnson, Curator, Special Collections & Rare Books
During the first week of April 2000 the University community celebrated the opening of Andersen Library as the latest jewel in the University Libraries system. This presentation will recall some of those early days including construction, collection moves into the building, and a series of special events which unveiled Andersen Library and its collections to the public.
