Your support makes it possible for the Libraries to advance research, learning, and knowledge sharing across the university.
"In our role as essential academic partners to the campus community, the services, expertise and collections of the University Libraries are redefining the function of the library in a world where digital is default.
By providing the fundamental tools that support the work of the institution, the Libraries make the learning and research goals of the university possible — enabling the experiences that catalyze collaboration, uncovering the materials that incite innovation and building the spaces that sustain student success.
With your commitment, CMU will build the library of the future, and its impact will be felt across the entire university and beyond."
