Libraries are no longer just a place to learn about the past, they are places to create the future. Ground-breaking faculty research and high quality student instruction are made possible with first-rate collections. Support for the continued acquisition, preservation, and accessibility of material sustains a student’s educational experience, leads researchers to new discoveries, and enhances the Libraries’ role as a major information resource for our community. The UCI Libraries Exhibits Program and other events feature thought-provoking speakers, showcase our diverse library collections, and promote the important scholarly and cultural role of the Libraries to the campus and community.
These funds are devoted to sparking imagination at the UCI Libraries:
Collection Enhancement Fund
Gifts to this fund help to purchase, or acquire access to, essential books, journals, and other educational materials in all formats (print, online, multimedia, etc.), that support the teaching and research on campus and serve as an information resources for the community.
For those who wish to endow a collection fund, we encourage you to learn more.
Honor With Books
Honor With Books enables donors to pay tribute to and celebrate life’s milestones by adding a commemorative digital bookplate and recognition note to the catalog record of a new book in the Libraries collections.
The UCI Libraries Gateway Society is a generous group of people who value the Libraries’ role in inspiring members of UCI and the community to discover and create knowledge. Support from the Gateway Society ensures the Libraries continued excellence and growth as a world-class institution serving the academic needs of the UCI campus and community.
