In 1968, the Board of Trustees approved plans for the construction of the fourth building of a six-phase Science-Research Complex. This building was to house the Departments of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, the Frank C. Ogg Science Library, classrooms, and lecture halls. Since that time, the building has provided a major center for the conduct of scientific research. Indeed, the majority of classes offered by the University in the field of mathematics and a variety of sciences, the offices for these departments, as well as many special lectures continue to take place within the building walls.  In 2009, the Ogg Science Library was closed and service was provided from Jerome Library.
