Priority fundraising projects
Grow our collections
The library’s collections fund is used to acquire new books and materials as well as ensure ongoing access to e-journals and other online resources. Students and faculty members depend on these collections to complete their assignments, work on their theses and carry out new research.
Enhance the student experience
Students have long relied on the library as a space for social and academic collaboration. Donor support helps make innovative learning spaces such as the Discovery Centre, group study rooms, and multimedia and conferencing technology available to students.
Increase access and preservation
Today’s students and researchers demand round-the-clock access to information, and scholars from around the world often request access to our unique resources. Donor support helps us digitize our current and future collections, build our virtual library and can allow us to extend our hours of operation on campus.
