Help Us Do Great Things

In the nearly 120 years since the Libraries first opened, UA librarians and faculty have dedicated their knowledge and expertise to developing a premier research collection that supports education, scholarship, and innovation. A vital entry to a world of discovery and creativity for individuals and communities of scholars at the University of Arizona, the Libraries strive to be at the forefront of providing unlimited access to information in a customer-centered environment where traditional and emerging information services converge.

Notable among the comprehensive collections in the Libraries are specializations in the fields of Science and Engineering, Architecture, Art, Music, History, and Languages. The Libraries' Special Collections has a regional focus on the Southwest and on Preserving Tucson's History and is home to rare books and manuscript collections, photographs and graphics.

Invest in the Libraries and help us do great things! Your gift to the University of Arizona Libraries directly benefits UA students and faculty by helping the Libraries acquire, organize and make accessible the tremendous amount of information resources, in electronic or print form, that are available today. Any size contribution to the UA Libraries helps us continue to provide important services to the University community and beyond. We also invite you to become a special Friend of the University Libraries.

The University Libraries offer an introspective quality, they are there to go beyond what’s offered in the classroom. They open the door to self-study.
