A $10 million gift will help the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), begin construction next year on a new $66 million "Knowledge Center." The donation comes in $5 million gifts from Reno-based International Game Technology (IGT), a slot machine manufacturer, and from former IGT chair Chuck Mathewson and his wife, Ann. UNR's current library was built in 1962 and designed to hold roughly 200,000 volumes serving fewer than 3000 students. UNR today has about 15,000 students, and the library houses over one million volumes.
