Notes: Having been planned since 1972, construction of the Science and Forestry Library began in 1974 as part of the Integrated University Complex. Funding for the project was cut, however, and thus the library was never fully finished. This resulted in poor lighting and air circulation, as well as an unaesthetically pleasing interior. Renovations in 1983 helped to solve these issues, and the Science and Forestry Library now holds the largest collection of scientific material in New Brunswick.
