July 1999 marked the groundbreaking ceremonies for a library expansion, an undertaking supported largely by a gift from alumni Joseph A. DiMenna, Jr. of the class of 1980. The project was guided over the next three years by University Librarian James Estrada and Director of Library Services Joan Overfield. In a ceremony on October 4, 2001, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library officially reopened, nearly doubled in size, fully wired, and offering state of the art technology. The DiMenna-Nyselius Library was designed by The Stubbins Associates and constructed by Gilbane Building Company. It is 118,000 square feet and has a capacity for 450,000 volumes, with a seating capacity for 900.
