State of the Libraries
Dr. Potter delivered his annual State of the Libraries address Aug, 15, telling the audience that the USG Board of Regents had recommended $1.5 million in planning monies for the proposed Special Collections Building. The proposal now goes to the General Assembly for approval, but paves the way for ground to be broken as early as 2009.
