Villanova’s library has a rich history on paper. Blueprints, feasibility studies, and non-professional drawings make up some of the ways that the administration has tried to conceptualize and re-imagine the library as a building. Here one can see blueprints from the two major building campaigns that were undertaken by the University. However, numerous other plans never made it off the drawing board, such as the 1993 Feasibility Study.
