Giving to the Florida State University Libraries
When you give to the FSU Libraries, you support the entire university. Each year, over 1.5 million students, faculty, staff and friends use the Libraries’ study and research facilities. Many more visit online. The Libraries provide Florida State scholars with almost 3 million books, journals, databases, audio-visual materials and microforms on virtually every subject.
Many donated materials, such as rare and collectible books and manuscripts, find a home in the Special Collections department of the FSU Libraries. In-kind gifts play a major role in increasing the depth and breadth of our collections. Items proposed for addition to the collections must generally meet the same selection criteria as purchased materials and be accepted by the Head of Special Collections or the Dean of the University Libraries.
We count on private support to build and maintain exceptional collections and provide outstanding services that enable students and faculty at Florida State to reach their full potential.
Financial support for the FSU Libraries is a crucial factor in the ongoing pursuit of our mission:
The University Libraries support and enhance the learning, teaching, research, and service activities of The Florida State University by providing organized access to quality information in all formats, promoting information literacy, preserving information, and engaging in collaborative partnerships to disseminate ideas to advance intellectual discovery.
Your gift can be directed in a number of ways. For more information or to make a donation: Please visit the FSU Foundation’s University Libraries page.
The Florida State University Libraries Advancement Board
The purpose of the Florida State University Libraries Advancement Board is to serve as an essential network of engaged alumni, faculty, staff and friends who will promote and assist the efforts of the University Libraries to raise private funds and receive foundation and corporate support to help fulfill the mission of the University Libraries. The Board is not expected to advise on issues of academic/library administration.
