Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg's Library and Information Technology Center, like the Admissions and Career Services Center and the Summit Tower and Suites, reflects the College's strategic decision to heighten its reputation as a leading liberal arts college. The Library and Information Technology Center brings together all campus IT services and the library's extensive collections under one roof, including the video/DVD and sound recordings collections formerly located in separate buildings. Principal Thomas Payne's building is unrelentingly modern, but its rough-cut stone and brick facings harken back to the 19th- and earlier 20th-century campus buildings. Its most impressive space is the double-height reading room with three large windows. The 2003 addition also knits together the loose quadrangle formed by the McKim, Mead & White range, the Mather Campus Center, the Austin Arts Center, and McCook Hall.
