The University of Dubuque dedicates a library today that’s the brainchild of the largest gift the school ever got. President Jeffrey Bullock says you can’t get more modern than this facility.Bullock says it’s ahead of state-of-the-art with 11 miles of cable, 250 “ports” for computers, a multimedia lab and computer resource center. And of course there’s the totem pole that tells about relationships with native people, students, teachers, and the link between native culture and the school’s religious history. President Bullock says the totem pole was custom-made for the school, a gift from Native American alumni. The library’s already in use.Although the library’s been open nearly a year, it’s still getting finishing touches. The library was built with a five-million-dollar gift from a graduate who made a fortune in the cold-storage business. It features private study rooms, an art alcove, and a popular coffee shop.
