Make a Gift, Make a Difference
As part of a public university, we receive some state funding. However, private individuals support the programs and initiatives that allow us to be on the forefront of academic libraries. With your help the University Library can make projects happen, support on-going programs, and provide for the University Library’s future. Whether you’re interested in advancing the collections or helping students, your interests can benefit the University Library.
The University Library has identified four primary areas of need:
Unrestricted gifts support special projects and opportunities for students, community outreach, as well as professional development for faculty and staff. Contributions to this fund help the library address current needs and priorities.
The Collections Fund helps build the library’s range of research resources. This includes books, journals, and electronic media such as online databases.
Through the generosity of donors to this fund, the library has been able to acquire some rare and unique resources like the Artists’ Book collection held by the Herron Art Library.
Diversity Scholars Fund:
Established in 2007, the IUPUI University Library Diversity Scholars Program offers outstanding undergraduates a yearlong, paid internship at the University Library. Paired with and guided by a faculty librarian, the student helps carry out the library’s diversity initiatives – receiving professional experience and valuable research skills as a result.
Friends of Joseph and Matthew Payton Library:
The Joseph and Matthew Payton Philanthropic Studies Library prepares individuals for lives of service through a wide range of materials that inform the study and practice of philanthropy. A contribution to this fund supports the work of researchers, students and nonprofit professionals through collection development and online tools like PRO—Philanthropy Resources Online.
