Hundreds of generous individuals have supported UCI Libraries over the years, and for that, we are grateful. With their help, the Libraries continue to advance research and education at UCI and invest in the lifelong learning needs of our region.
Support from parents has helped build UCI Libraries into the extraordinary resource it is today. The tradition of support established by UCI parents for the Libraries helps ensure our students have access to the information resources and study spaces they need to explore, discover, and advance our communities. Over 50% of the Libraries' annual donors are UCI parents - a statement of their belief in the importance of supporting academic achievement for all students.
Support from alumni ensures that the Libraries remain the campus’ gateway to knowledge, whereby our students and our university can advance to even greater success! We sincerely appreciate the support of all Anteaters as it reflects both their understanding of the fundamental role the Libraries play in the lives of students, and the importance of giving back and impacting the growing academic reputation of their alma mater.
We are grateful for the support of our community friends who truly value knowledge and lifelong learning. Whether you live nearby or farther away, the Libraries are a critical intellectual and cultural resource for our region, and play an important role in advancing research and education in our community. Library friends are made up of members of the larger community, faculty, instructors, teachers, staff and retirees. All appreciate the important resources a research library provides to improve the lives of our citizens, corporations and organizations in the surrounding area. Hundreds of community patrons enter our libraries each day, using computers and books, getting reference help, or studying quietly. Like our students, they depend on our collections and services for their educational experiences, professional development, and retirement enrichment.
Thank you to all our donors who support the UCI Libraries. We would like to recognize our donors from the past year.
