Biographical/Historical note

In 1973 the name of the Heber J. Grant Library was changed to the Harold B. Lee Library, in honor of the former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. President Oaks began an addition to the library in 1974 which was dedicated in 1977, adding 215,000 square feet. President Bateman also decided to expand the library. Ground was broken in 1996. President Gordon B. Hinckley dedicated the new addition in 2000. The Harold B. Lee Library is now 665,000 square feet, with 98 miles of shelving housing the 6 million items in the library's collection. (Information taken from http://www.lib.byu.edu/libhistory.html)
