Built in 1959, Lilly Library was renovated and expanded in 1992. Resources from the Goodrich Chemistry Library were integrated into Lilly in the summer of 2000. The holdings include more than 434,460 book and periodical bound volumes; 5,530 current periodical titles; and a media collection of over 11,151 recordings, CD's, videos and other media.
Both in the library and on the campus network students have access to periodical indexes and the online catalog of the 2.7 million volumes of Wabash and the 24 other private colleges and seminaries that are part of the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI). Additional off-campus resources available electronically from the Library web site encompass a wide range of specialized subject indexes and abstracts, full-text journal and information databases, and the OCLC international database of 37.5 million volumes in over 30,000 libraries around the world.
The Library also features the Goodrich Seminar Room on its second floor, which was funded by Pierre Goodrich. This grand gathering place provides Wabash students with a practical tool for understanding and interpreting the historical evolution of the idea of individual liberty.
