The nucleus of the Library's collection was formed in 1898 and the Library has occupied two different buildings: the Registry known now as the Old Administration Building at the St. Augustine Campus and the building at its present location on the JFK quadrangle which was completed with funds provided by the United States Government in 1969. The Library has been known as the John F. Kennedy Library, The Main Library and was officially renamed The Alma Jordan on February 28th 2011. During the course of the celebrations to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the St. Augustine Campus of The UWI in 2010, it was decided to name certain buildings in recognition of staff members who made outstanding contributions to the development of the campus. Seven buildings were renamed and one of them being the Main Library in recognition of Dr Alma Jordan, who was Campus Librarian at The Main Library from 1960 to 1989, serving also as University Librarian from 1982 to her retirement in 1989. The Library continues the tradition of service first offered from the landmark Administration Building.
