Ways to Give to the Merrill-Cazier Library

Please consider investing in the most basic foundation of research and education at USU by contributing with a cash gift using our giving form or through payroll deduction (List “Faculty Library Endowment” in the “Funds Supported” column.)

Include the Library in an Estate or Will Plan

By including the Merrill-Cazier Libraries in your estate plan or will, you can leave a legacy and make a difference in the lives of USU students for generations. Bequests can be arranged through a variety of giving instruments, such as charitable gift annuities, life insurance, retirement accounts, or the proceeds from the sale of a home or farm.

For more information and planning assistance, please contact the Development Office at (800) 653-6246 or download giving form.

Donation of Materials

The Library will gladly accept contributions of materials such as rare books, or materials of historical interest for inclusion in USU's Special Collections & Archives. Please review our areas of collecting or contact Associate Dean Todd Welch at todd.welch@usu.edu or (435) 797-8268 if you are considering a donation of special materials.

Due to limited ability to review and catalog materials, the Library is no longer accepting books or other materials for inclusion in the general library collection.
