History: This beautiful building is a combination of an exterior architectural design that allows it to blend smoothly with neighboring buildings that have existed for 100 years, and interior facilities that meet the needs of students for access to multimedia and computer technology. The interior design of the building also echoes the cherry paneling, comfortable chairs, and small, quiet spaces for reading and studying, that were features of the libraries in the private houses in the neighborhood. The IC combines a traditional 60,000 volume library with online access to numerous databases and Web sites. The building was named to honor Robert and Holly Miller, whose generosity made the building a reality. Mrs. Miller was also a trustee of the College.
