About Andersen Library
On May 14, 1999, the University of Minnesota Board of Regents unanimously voted to name the newest library facility in honor of former Governor Elmer L. Andersen. It was indeed a fitting tribute to a man who has been the most stalwart of friends to both the University and its Libraries for many years.
The Elmer L. Andersen Library is located on the West Bank of the Twin Cities Campus of the University of Minnesota. This state-of-the-art facility houses many of the University's special collections and archives units, the Digital Library Services' digitization center, the central office of the MINITEX Library Information Network, and the Minnesota Library Access Center (MLAC).
