University of Texas, Texas A&M open joint library space

The Texas A&M University System and The University of Texas System have opened a Joint Library Facility at Texas A&M University’s Riverside Campus. The $6.3 million, 18,000-square-foot library facility will enable both university library systems to store print books and journals using high-density shelving, and minimize the physical requirements and costs of print storage. The building can accommodate more than a million books; the universities will make them available for use by other academic or medical institutions. The Riverside Campus is near Bryan on the former Bryan Air Force Base, about 10 miles northwest of the main Texas A&M campus.
