Architecture of Irwin Today
The original design of Irwin's exterior, as well as the main features of its interior, have been preserved since the library's opening in 1963. However, many aspects of the interior have changed. On the top floor, where there were mostly empty spaces in Irwin's early days, there are now rooms for the university archives, digital collections, academic technology and more. Furniture and carpets have been updated on each floor, and the basement is now a colorful place for studying.
