At the risk of sounding stupid... how (if at all) would this be used in a tourist capacity?  Could it?  Is this one of those, "hey family, hop in the car!  we are headed to the state archives!"

Would the city tourism groups use this as a way to promote tourism?
It is a beautiful building regardless.

^ ^ ^ Just as with the existing State Library--albeit quite cramped--I'm sure they will have numerous displays of important documents and findings.  Perhaps they'll even give some tours to show how they preserve old items.

Probably lots of field trips too I would guess

Lots of folks go to State Libraries to do historical research as well as Genealogy research. I spent many an hour at the current location and there were a number of folks from out of town doing research.
