Collection, Service, and Scholarship Endowments

Annual income from endowments allows the University Libraries to add to our physical and digital collections, enhance library spaces, access cutting-edge technology, and provide guidance for student success and professional development for faculty and staff. Endowments begin at $25,000, and donors may make a single gift or build an endowed fund over time.
