Annual gifts allow OSU Libraries and Press to respond quickly to emerging priorities and vital needs as they arise. These unrestricted gifts provide critical support for our programs and services, which in turn foster excellence throughout all of OSU’s academic programs. We could not be where we are today without the generous loyalty of OSU’s alumni, faculty, students, staff, and friends.
Sustained annual gifts support the purchase of books, videos, CDs, and other resources that support undergraduate learning and research and faculty scholarship and creativity. They enhance our physical spaces and support the creation and maintenance of an environment that promotes collaborative learning and quiet reflection and study. We also use annual funds to remain on the cutting edge of technology either through the purchase of computers or hand held devices or by building accessible and mobile digital collections and websites. Because generous supporters give annually, we can continue to establish innovative programs, services, and collections that shape learning and teaching at OSU. We can provide support for ongoing excellence throughout professional development opportunities for faculty and staff.
Annual giving demonstrates support of our goal to become a model 21st century research library and university press.
