Make a Difference - Make a Gift

Gifts of any size will enhance what we can do for our students. Your gift helps to ensure their success. Thank you! --Jeanne Stierman,  Interim Dean of Libraries

How have we used past gifts?

  • Established the Graham Scholarship, awarded to library student employees each year
  • Created funds for on-going support of specific collections such as multicultural fiction, holocaust educational materials, and health sciences resources
  • Purchased a large flat-bed scanner for the Music Library, allowing students to digitize and work with large scores and sheets

  • How might we use new gifts?

  • A database subscription or an e-book collection
  • A scanner that lets us convert microfilm to digital text, simplifying student research
  • Infrared wireless counters to update entrances
