dc.description.abstractKalamazoo College President Weimer K. Hicks and several unidentified students carry books across the street. Saturday, April 8, 1967 was known as the "Big Move" when students and faculty members volunteered to move 50,000 library books from Mandelle Library to the new Upjohn Library. That evening an all-college dance was held in the new building. Mandelle Hall, originally built to house 65,000 volumes and seat 130 students, was bursting at the seams by the time the new Upjohn Library was dedicated in 1967. More than 110,000 volumes were moved to the new facility that year, leaving Mandelle to be renovated for use as the College's administrative offices. The new library, designed by Edward Coe Embury, was built with more contemporary features such as an audio-visual center, rare book and college archives rooms, carpeted study areas to seat 700 students, and air conditioning. It was named for the Upjohn family, long-time supporters of the College.en_US
