The Lindsay Young Endowment was established in 1989 by Lindsay Young “for special acquisitions in the humanities that will make a qualitative difference in the collection of the Libraries.” Nominations for the Lindsay Young Endowment Fund are gathered from humanities faculty and librarians each spring semester. Resources costing over $1,000 are eligible; the endowment does not fund subscriptions. Selections for purchase are finalized in April from the nominations by a committee of humanities teaching faculty and librarians. To ensure balanced acquisitions, every humanities department / program is encouraged to submit nominations.
