Advancing Learning Success With Your Help

We share your passion for libraries

Sustaining libraries that flourish in an ever-changing world requires the collective commitment of engaged individuals. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you who value the University Libraries and the work being done on behalf of the next generation of leaders. Your gifts are vital to our continued efforts to serve.

Innovation

The University Libraries support intellectual innovation through scholarly resources and creative, collaborative learning spaces. We also offer cutting edge technology and world class service to students, faculty, and community members.

Inquiry

The University Libraries nurture the production of knowledge through inquiry while fostering excellence in learning, teaching and research for students and faculty.

Preserving History

The University Libraries embraces developing technologies while simultaneously honoring the past. Through the use of digitization and archival protocols, the Libraries is committed to preserving valuable historical images, records and documents that tell the story of our region’s past.

Where your gift hits the ground

Donor support impacts the work we do and the services we provide on a daily basis. From providing student internship opportunities to subsidizing critical technology, philanthropy plays a key role in making sure the University Libraries has the resources it needs to support our students, faculty and community.

Get Involved

The University Libraries is the heart of our campus, providing support to students, faculty, researchers and community members. Our staff -- from the expert subject liaison librarians, the @One tech crew, the digital services lab team, the Special Collections archivists and every position in-between -- is dedicated to supporting learning success. To ensure our next generation of innovators and leaders is well equipped for the future, the University Libraries provides an expansive array of resources, from anatomical models to cutting edge technology and of course, journals and books. Our librarians assist students and researchers while assisting faculty to improve learning outcomes.

Your gift can be directed to support any of these areas or any of our on-going special projects.  Making a gift to the University Libraries makes a positive and concrete impact on learning.  We would love to talk to you about some of our current projects and learn more about what libraries mean to you.

In this age of digital technology and instant information, the question often arises, “Do libraries have a role in the 21st century?” The answer is unequivocally yes. In the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center and DeLaMare Science & Engineering Libraries, we wholeheartedly embrace digital and information technologies as essential to our mission.
