The Library’s collection growth in the twentieth century came from gifts by alumni and supporters, and the University continues to benefit from major gifts of special collections materials, from rare books and maps to important literary manuscripts and historic documents.

New endowments will allow the Library to acquire rare materials and to build the Library’s general circulating collections, both print and digital. Support is needed to keep this heavily used circulation vital and up to date in traditional, new, and emerging academic areas.
