The expansion wing of the Margaret

provide necessary space for student
work areas and rare library materials
said Kenneth Roach dkvKtor of
libraries and Instructional media.
Tlie need to provide space for a
government documents collection
which is the fastest growing section of
the library is one reason for buildteg
the wing said Reach. Brown Library
has been designated by Congress as a
government depository library he said.
A government depository library
receives material from the federal
government at no charge. "However
as with all free gifts they're not exactly
free." said Roach "We have to provide
space for it. "The government
documents collection wW be set up on
the third level of the wing1 he said.
A special collections room will be
constructed on tho second level. This
room will contain railroad collections
rare Bible and textbook collections and
the university's archives said Roach.
The railroad collection was started to
preserve the historical and cultural
background of Abilene as a railroad
town Roach explained.
Textbooks predating the 1998s are
contained in the textbook collection
said Roach. These textbooks provide a
record of education te America he
The aroturss of the tswrersity

Roach. The collection contains most ef
the publications put out by ACU most'
of the yearbooks pubhehed aed a file of
articles written about ACU people be
These collections are. considered

alibrary the stee of Brown library to
have such material Roaeh sold.
In addition to the seaee allocated ter
rare materials the expansion wing wiH
contain an atrium three large
classrooms and an unfinished area for
future growth Roach said.
The two-story atrium will: be
designated as an area of leisure where
students may visit and study together
Three classrooms with a capacity for
approximately 130 to 150 people will be
provided temporarily on the second
level Roach said.When other
classrooms can be built the three
classrooms wlil be removed and the
space will be 'edl for library ex-
pansion he said.
Reach said the expansion's first level
will be used as an area for future
growth and will remain unfinished.
"There are ptens In the mlH for use ef
