Support the University Libraries

A donation to the Libraries is a donation to all of UT.

We serve all students and faculty, as well as alumni and the greater Knoxville community. Gifts are essential for the Library to support, promote, and enrich the University’s teaching and research missions. Donations can help us to transform spaces, refresh and expand our services, acquire needed materials, and preserve our rich and unique collections. Your support also enables us to provide training and professional development opportunities for our staff and otherwise invest in the future.

Join the Library Society of the University of Tennessee today to ensure the ongoing success of our students, faculty, and community.
