Cline Library (University Library)
Arizona State College constructed the three- story, 66,000 square foot University Library in 1966 to replace outgrown Gammage Library. Its International style featured clean lines and little ornamentation. In 1980, the university added 30,000 square feet and then in 1988, renamed it Cline Library, honoring Flagstaff "Citizens of the Century" Platt and Barbara Cline. Four years later, NAU more than doubled library space with another addition and renovation in a distinctive postmodern style.
Cline Library links NAU to the world. People conduct research, browse its 1.5 million volumes, get laptops, create multimedia projects in "The Studios," and attend lectures and movies. Cline also hosts Special Collections and Archives, a public repository containing several million unique manuscripts and visual items about the Colorado Plateau.
