<p>Which college/university has the coolest-looking / most aesthetically pleasing library? What one person loves another may hate, but it would be interesting to see your opinions...</p>
<p>University of Rochester</p>
<p>I loved BC's libraries, mainly because they reminded me of Trinity College Dublin</p>

<p>I have only seen about ten, but I say Middlebury. Great architecture. There's a huge bowed window looking out at the mountains.</p>
<p>Wisconsin History Library (formerly UW library--now jointly operated)</p>
<p>Of course I can also put a thumbs up for my school haha:</p>
<p>Robert Muldrow Cooper Library (Clemson):

<p>I agree, that's a very attractive structure. </p>
<p>When the new Mansueto library is completed in 2011, the University of Chicago will have the largest collection completely accessible from a single campus of any research library in North America. The new space will feature state-of-the-art preservation and access technology to ensure that all items in its holdings are quickly retrievable. This bucks a popular trend toward moving rarely-used materials off campus or into storage to make way for expansive student study spaces (dubbed "trompe l'oeil" libraries by one critic).</p>
<p>lynxinsider beat me to Rhodes. I love libraries, and Barret literally made my jaw drop.</p>
<p>App State has an amazing new library with a beautiful view of the mountains.
<p>Wake Forest has perhaps the coziest library I've seen.
<p>Brown's libraries (the "Rock" and Sci Li) definitely get my vote for the ugliest library exteriors.</p>
<p>Interesting site (some are university libraries, some are not):</p>
