"The UT [University of Texas] System Board of Regents authorized planning and funding for the new Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL) facility in 1972...
PCL, an open-stack facility, embraces all subject fields, with strongest holdings in the humanities, social sciences, business, and education...
The Perry-Castañeda Library is named for two former University professors, Ervin S. Perry and Carlos E. Castañeda. Professor Perry was the first African American to be appointed to the academic rank of professor, and Professor Castañeda played a central role in the early development of the Benson Latin American Collection.
The Perry-Castañeda Library is one of the largest academic library buildings in North America and is a major research center in Texas. Three years under construction, the six-level, open-stack facility was designed to serve as the main library of UT Austin."
