about the library

the bette e. landman library is a three-story building at the heart of the arcadia campus. in 2002, a multi-million dollar renovation campaign brought the former atwood library firmly into the 21st century with a solid show of support from the entire university community. its striking design won a 2005 aia/ala library building award.

the library is a member of two consortia, the southeastern pennsylvania consortium for higher education (sepche) and the tri-state college cooperative (tclc).
