The Library-Administration building (now Langson Library) was one of the eight original buildings that were ready for occupancy when the campus opened in the Fall of 1965. According to the original plan, work began early in 1968 to double the size of the Library-Administration Building for occupancy in the fall of 1969. Photos of the construction of the expanded building (below) were taken in February 1969. Expanding rapidly to keep pace with the equally rapid development of research and graduate instruction, the UCI Library grew from 85,000 volumes on opening (October 1965) to 312,000 volumes by June 30,1969.
