The article was a bit outdated so I added information on the addition. I'm sort of new to non-minor editing, so I'm still figuring out the citation. I think I'm only going to cite the main addition page from the library's website because it contains all of the details and press coverage on the project. Keipop 18:56, 6 September 2006 (UTC)keipop

"Largest on-campus library in the world"[edit]

Okay, first of all, the citation is down. It helps that I'm in Hyde Park and know that the Reg addition will increase the size of the library by about 2.5 million volumes. However, the ALA library fact sheet [1] notes that the University of Chicago's library size, in 2007, amounted to 7,926,905 Volumes. This puts the final size at approx 10.4 million volumes, well below Berkeley, Urbana-Champaign, and barely superceding Colombia. I'll accept that both Harvard and Yale have moved their books off-campus, and therefore can be disqualified from consideration, but it seems awfully questionable to use "the largest on-campus library in the world", especially without a link to a page outside the university. -- (talk) 18:45, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
