GIVING TO THE LIBRARIES

University Libraries help students become lifelong learners and make possible intellectual discovery, curiosity, experimentation, and learning. Researchers, scholars, and learners from Columbus and around the globe use University Libraries to do innovative research and create transformative experiences. It is the ability to help each new visitor turn passion into opportunity that has helped University Libraries continue its impact for more than 140 years.

Looking to the future, we continue exploring innovative ways to ensure University Libraries will always be a space where minds open and ideas come to life. We can’t do that without you.

We invite you to review the ways to support University Libraries and safeguard the discovery and learning for future generations.
