A male student with glasses leans on the circulation desk, while a female library staff member has her back to the camera. In the background can be seen newspaper racks and the bronze grate divider. On the other side of the divider is the reading lounge and current periodicals section.
In 1968, all the books were moved from Canisius and Xavier Halls to the new library building. It featured a smoking area, two typing rooms, and the school's first full-time reference librarian. In 1971, the library was named Nyselius Library in honor of benefactors Gustav and Dagmar Nyselius. Image date is approximate.
