Editor’s note: According to University spokeswoman Cass Cliatt ’96, the Lewis Library was in the design phase well before the University established its construction guidelines calling for LEED certification in 2005–06. She said the air-conditioning system should be “reasonably efficient” and that minimizing south-facing glass means less heat transfer from the sun in the summer than might be expected for a building composed largely of glass.)
