Zimmerman Library West Wing and Willard Room

tables and chairs in the willard room


The historic West Wing, including the Willard Room, is a popular quiet study space for students. No tour of campus would be complete without a visit to this space, but please do respect the quietness we maintain in this part of the library. 

The four-panel Kenneth Adams mural, “Three Peoples”, located in the West Wing has been covered due to the offensive depictions of cultural groups in New Mexico. Access to the murals is managed by the College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences Dean's Office. More information and a viewing request form for the murals can be found at
