New library

The USP School of Economics, Business Administration and Accounting (FEA-USP) inaugurated new facilities at its library. Construction of the more than 5,000 square meter expansion began in 2010 and was financed by R$6.7 million in USP funds, as well as contributions by private enterprise. The average number of visitors to the library is likely to increase from 350,000 to 537,000 a year. The new area has 430,000 volumes, making it the largest collection in Latin America of works on administration, economics, accounting, and actuarial sciences. Of this total, 250,000 came from the private collection of former minister and USP professor emeritus Antonio Delfim Netto. The library also features amphitheaters, one of them inspired by a model at Harvard University, and a meeting space for people who are working in teams.
