Collection Historical Note

Prior to the construction of Morris Library, Southern Illinois Normal University's library was located in Wheeler Library.  When it opened in 1904, SINU was one of the first Normal schools in the United States to have a separate building for its library collection.  During the period of 1948-1950, the number of volumes in the library more than doubled from 73,600 to 111,565.  Southern Illinois University grew dramatically during Delyte Morris's presidential tenure (1948-1970) and the need for a new library became apparent.  The cornerstone was laid in 1953 and the new library, named after President Morris, was formally dedicated on April 25-26, 1958.  The library underwent significant renovations from 2003-2009 and was rededicated on April 16, 2009.
