Naming Opportunities

The University Libraries’ semi-annual user surveys point consistently to what every user of our libraries has known for some time: the Libraries’ facilities threaten to shortchange the academic promise of the University, and these concerns must be addressed immediately.


One of the benefits of our capital campaign is the opportunity it affords our supporters to create a lasting imprint on our institution. A significant number of major-gift naming opportunities are part of our capital campaign, and major donors will be recognized through permanent signage prominently displayed in association with their gifts. Thus, donors have an opportunity to support the Libraries while honoring or memorializing loved ones, mentors, or themselves.


The lasting merits of donors’ investments will be readily apparent every time a donor visits the campus and meets our students. And, during those visits, one overriding conclusion will emerge: donors like you have played a mission critical role in creating enduring resources for future generations of students.
