Liberty University Jerry Falwell Library
Branch and Associates
The 170,000-square-foot building holds more than 500,000 books in addition to electronic collections. A robot-assisted storage system allows for electronic browsing of titles as well as previewing text prior to selection of print material. Liberty University estimates that the book storage and robotic retrieval system occupies 7% of the library, while 67% is reserved for collaborative meeting areas and student study spaces. The remaining 26% includes a four-story atrium, a two-story food court and a museum.
