The University of Alabama Libraries is essential in advancing the educational mission of the University.  We provide innovation instruction, services, and resources to facilitate teaching, research, and learning.

The creation of endowments, major gifts, and individual monetary donations supports the advancement of the University Libraries. Donations and funds from endowments are used to purchase new books and media for our collections, improve library spaces, and assist in staffing.

Your gifts afford us the tools and opportunities to advance the educational mission of the University while supporting our faculty and students to achieve their greatest potential, create change, and positively influence the world.

Thank you for your support.
