Western Libraries
Supporting Students and Faculty at Western Libraries

Your gift to Western Libraries strengthens research, teaching, and learning throughout the university. Funds support critical educational resources, access to digital collections, and important programs and services that promote collaboration and innovation, inquiry, curiosity, and creativity.  

Through your generosity, Western Libraries can better help our students engage thoughtfully with our complex history, find solutions to the 21st-century’s most challenging societal problems, and strengthen pluralism and democracy in pursuit of a more promising shared future.

We are committed to meeting the ever-changing needs of those who depend on the Libraries. With your help, we are able to provide access to a wide array of library collections, unique and primary source materials, and student-centered services like those offered by the Tutoring Center and the Hacherl Research & Writing Studio. Your support expands opportunities for students to share their research at conferences and participate in programs that promote their academic success and lifelong learning. Finally, your support helps us connect with and support Western’s students in ways that can foster self-confidence, agency, and belonging.

Your support helps us connect students, faculty, and staff across Western to the  resources, expertise, and collections essential to their academic success, lifelong learning, and community. Thank you!

You can support the Libraries in a variety of ways. Please see a complete list of giving opportunities on the checkout page. Thank you for your gift!
