Support USU Libraries

The University Libraries serve nearly a million students, faculty, staff, and community members per year. Because of the broad-reaching services that we provide, a gift to the Libraries makes a difference in the academic pursuits of every student and faculty member across all disciplines of the University.

The Libraries depend on the financial support of our friends to continue to provide broader and deeper resources to users. Your gift will help provide our students and faculty with the resources required to continue the long tradition of academic and research excellence at Utah State University. Thank you for considering a gift to the University Libraries.
