Hardin Library for the Health Sciences opened in 1974.  The building was designed by Walter Netsch, and was  funded by $1.4 million in  gifts and a National Institute of Health grant for $2.3 million.

The John Martin Rare Book Room was started by a generous donation of books and funding from Dr. John Martin.

See History of the Hardin Library for more pictures and information about the library.
