About the Zach S. Henderson Library

The Zach S. Henderson Library serves more than 4,000 people daily with resources that support a comprehensive array of degrees, disciplines, research activity and learning objectives. With more than 400 hard-wired computer workstations, access to archives of data and information, and an innovative storage solution, the Henderson Library ranks as one of the most technologically advanced in the Southeast.
The Library was designed for both independent and collaborative learning and includes group study rooms, presentation practice rooms and a Learning Commons equipped with stations for standard and multimedia applications. The facility houses more than one million books, periodicals and other documents. Behind the scenes, the Automated Retrieval Collection (ARC) allows for the efficient and compact storage of hundreds of thousands of current resources and future acquisitions.

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.

SIZE OF THE LIBRARY: The total square footage of the library is 235,000.
