The University of Denver's new library building is called the Anderson Academic Commons; it is no longer called Penrose Library. Inside the Anderson Academic Commons, we recognize the many contributions of the El Pomar Foundation, which was founded by Spencer and Julie Penrose, by naming the library’s collections “The Penrose Collection.” We acknowledge the collection name both in the Anderson Academic Commons and at the Hampden Center where some of the lesser-used materials are stored. A permanent exhibit on the lower level of the Anderson Academic Commons honors the contributions of the El Pomar Foundation to the University Libraries.
