Construction began on the University of Iowa’s Main Library on May 11, 1949, and it was dedicated in January 1952. By 1965, two additions to the building had been completed, creating a building of 200,000 square feet. In 1967, another expansion began, which almost doubled the library’s size. A current project to create a new Learning Commons will provide an “intellectual hub” with space for 500-plus students. The 37,000-square-foot space in the UI Main Library is the product of a unique partnership among ITS, University Libraries, and the Office of the Provost.
