About the Library
MISSION: Zach S. Henderson Library supports Georgia Southern University by providing access to information, collections, and services designed to meet the scholarly needs of the University and the general public. The Library promotes independent lifelong learning, employs a learner-centered service ethic, and ensures a comfortable and secure study environment.
The Henderson Library opened in 1975 after outgrowing the Rosenwald building. A $22.75 million expansion/renovation project began in summer 2004 and was completed in August 2008. This expansion added 101,000-square feet to the original building and included the first Automated Storage and Retrieval System in any library in the southeast. More information on that project is available on our building and renovation page.
SIZE OF THE LIBRARY: The total square footage of the library is 235,000.
