Fundraising Priorities

The Library’s fundraising priorities are driven by projects that nurture and advance our mission and embrace our values. We are a diverse and inclusive community focused on supporting the University’s faculty, students, alumni and researchers; embracing curiosity, experimentation and learning through open and equitable access to knowledge and collaborative partnerships.

Library Annual Fund (Celebrating 10 Years of the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library)

Gifts to the Library Annual Fund celebrate 10 years of Mansueto by empowering the Library and the University to continue in our pioneering tradition at the forefront of scholarship.

Library Fund for Books

The Fund for Books enables the Library to acquire print materials and access to online versions of print materials, ensuring scholars have the resources they need to learn and explore.

Conservation and Preservation Fund

Preserving the Library’s physical and digital collections is an investment in the future that ensures students and scholars can continue to take advantage of our resources. With millions of books and materials in circulation every year, the Preservation Program repairs and stabilizes these essential resources for future generations.

Center for Digital Scholarship

The Center for Digital Scholarship provides online spaces for faculty and students to explore new methodologies, analyze complex data and share and preserve research results – bolstering the Library’s role as a nexus of ideas and community.

Library Residency Program

The Library Residency Program provides opportunities for recent graduates seeking careers as librarians to build their skills at the Library. Equally, the Library’s services and resources are enhanced by their work and innovations.
