KU Libraries

KU Libraries contribute to the success of every student, faculty member and unit at KU. With six locations on campus, the libraries serve every academic department and division. When you give to the libraries, your support benefits student success by helping us offer expert research assistance, collaborative and inspirational study spaces and access to a remarkable range of distinctive physical collections and electronic resources.

Gifts from alumni and friends serve a critical role in our work to support academic achievement and fuel research at KU and beyond. Help KU Libraries make an impact on future generations of students, faculty and researchers by donating today!
