U. of Miami Adds Three Millionth Book

Ever wonder what happened to Donna Shalala? She served as Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Bill Clinton for all eight years of his administration.

Since 2001, she's been the fifth President of the University of Miami, and she's exceedingly proud of the libraries on her campus. "The most important buildings on our campuses are our libraries," said Shalala. She explained that libraries can be an effective recruiting tool, which is one reason UM will continue "upgrading and expanding our collection."

The three millionth book, Dialogues et Chants Royaux, a previously lost 16th century manuscript, has just been added to the U of M library, with the fanfare described here.
