Following a ten-year fundraising campaign, the long-awaited Library Information Network Centre (LINC) was officially opened. It was the largest construction project on campus since University Hall.
More than $10 million was raised by close to 3,600 individuals, corporations and organizations, including the University of Lethbridge Students' Union. The largest single donation was $1.5 million.
In addition to housing the University Library and Security Services, the LINC building features study areas, breakout rooms, and Security Services. At the time the library itself was one of the most technologically advanced and spacious libraries in North America.
