The Menzies Library
The Menzies Library official opening: 13 March 1963
The first purpose-built library building on the ANU campus was the RG Menzies Library, which was opened by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 13 March 1963 at a grand ceremony attended by many dignitaries including HRH the Duke of Edinburgh, ANU Chancellor Sir John Cockcroft, ANU Vice Chancellor Sir Leonard Huxley and Prime Minister Robert Menzies, after whom the building was named.
Today the Menzies Library is home to the ANU Library Asia Pacific collections as well as the ANU Library theses and rare book collections. It is also home to the ANU Archives Reading Room, ANU Press, University Records, the Library's Digitisation Team, and more.
