As we enter the holiday season — a time of joy, community, and gratitude — I would like to take a moment to sincerely thank you for the many ways you have supported the UCR Library.
With 2017 fast approaching, we are reminded that we have so much to be grateful for in the past year. Fall alone has been one for the record! Not only did we welcome back over 22,000 students and close to 200 new faculty members to campus, but UCR has gone public with our biggest fundraising initiative yet, “Living the Promise: The Campaign for UC Riverside.”
As our greatest supporters, we would like to share how UCR Library is “Living the Promise.” As part of the comprehensive campaign, the library has come together as a community to define the following priority areas for philanthropic support:
- Facility enhancements
- Endowed Librarianships
- Support for Special and Distinctive Collections
- Funding to support paid undergraduate and graduate student internships at the UCR Library
- Foster innovation and entrepreneurship
- Collaborate campus-wide to establish a Science Fiction Research Center
Every single dollar gifted to the Library makes an impact on the quality of service and overall experience we provide to students, faculty and the research community at large. We hope you know how much we appreciate your support and friendship. If not for your generosity, these areas would just simply be a vision.
Wishing you a safe and gratitude-filled holiday season!
