among the top 100 research institutions in the United States. VCU's strategic
plan (http://www.future.vcu.edu/pdfs/Quest_Full_Document.pdf) embraces an
acceleration in the growth of VCU's library system and includes a new Master
Site Plan that envisions additions to both library facilities operated by the
VCU Libraries. Architectural work has begun on a major addition to and
