Library Closure for Spring Break

The Robert W. Woodruff Library at the Atlanta University Center will be closed from Tuesday, March 30 through Sunday, April 4, 2021. The library will reopen Monday, April 5, at 7:30 a.m.. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but all services and resources remain available online. Please enjoy the academic break and holiday.

About the Library

Constructed in 1982, the Robert W. Woodruff Library is named in honor of the late Robert Winship Woodruff, philanthropist and former CEO of The Coca-Cola Company.

The library supports the teaching, learning and research missions of four institutions of higher education that comprise the world’s largest consortium of HBCUs: Clark Atlanta University, the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College and Spelman College. As the “center of the Center,” the AUC Woodruff Library is the intellectual and information hub of the Atlanta University Center. 

The AUC Woodruff Library is also home to the Archives Research Center, which is noted for its extensive and unique holdings of materials on the African American experience, including the John Henrik Clarke Africana and African American Collection, the Henry P. Slaughter and Countee Cullen Memorial Collection, and the Tupac Amaru Shakur Collection. In addition, at the request of Morehouse College, the library serves as custodian of the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection.
