Giving to the University Library
The Library Advancement Office promotes and coordinates charitable giving to the University Library. The University Library has a mission to support the teaching, research, and service programs of the University by acquiring, organizing, preserving, providing access to and delivering information.
Gifts from individuals, corporations, or foundations enable us to make more books, journals, digital materials and online resources available to students, faculty, and staff. The Library is open to the public, and resources are available to patrons in the Library; many resources are available by visiting the Library virtually.
Contact Katy Frey, Director of Advancement for more information.
