Following a ten-year fundraising campaign, the long-awaited Library Information Network Centre (LINC) was officially opened. It is the second largest construction project on campus since University Hall.

More than $10 million was raised by close to 3,600 individuals, corporations, and organizations, including the University of Lethbridge Students' Union. The largest single donation was $1.5 million.

The building features study areas, breakout rooms, and Security Services. At the time the library itself was one of the most technologically advanced and spacious libraries in North America.
