ARCATA- Humboldt State University's library is featured in a new exhibit on campus. The display is part of the university's centennial celebration and takes a look at the library's history during the 100 years the college has been around.

The exhibit is called 'The Evolution of Information' and shows how the library's purpose has changed since the Humboldt Normal School was established in 1913.

Joan Berman, who works at the library, said the library has seen major technological changes and was previously a place focused on books and now mainly serves students as a place to study.
