Pictured here, the Delmar T. Oviatt Library at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) is fenced off and prepared for partial demolition and reconstruction following the January 17, 1994 Northridge earthquake. The construction crane is reflected in a pool of water in the foreground. The Oviatt Library core, a concrete structure built in the early 1970s, was damaged in the quake and restored for service by the fall of 1994. However, the east and west wings, completed just three years prior to the earthquake, suffered irreparable damage. The east and west wings were subsequently demolished, rebuilt, and restored to full service in the fall of 2000. Black and white photograph, 8 x 10 in.
