The fifth floor is home to the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, which specializes in the history of botany and all aspects of plant science. The university's IDeATe program, which offers nine undergraduate minors in domains that merge technology and arts expertise, is housed in the basement. The building opened in 1961, thanks to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hunt.
