The Friends of the Library are ambassadors to the community. Members help share the news that the Libraries plan an important role in helping students learn and prepare for their careers and future. Friends actively shape the Libraries' collections through their financial support and gifts-in-kind. Thanks to your contributions, well-developed collections of electronic resources, books, and journals elevate the performance of students and faculty, and directly contribute to the University's development.

Membership in the Friends is open to any person who gives money, books, manuscripts, periodicals, or other educational material to the University Libraries. Members receive an annual newsletter and other publications, and invitations to programs and the annual dinner.
