Ways to Give

Why Your Gift Matters

Please consider making a gift today. Each and every gift to University Libraries allows us to remain a leader among academic research libraries and build on our foundation of excellence at the nation’s first public university. 

Carolina is fortunate to have a world class-research library system that is laser-focused on student success. We are fortunate to have the only library in the world committed to the preservation of the complex history and culture of our state and University, and to have libraries that enable research and scholarship through deep collections and expert librarians and archivists.

University Libraries add so much to the experiences of students, faculty, and our community thanks in great measure to the generosity of friends and donors like you. Your gift matters – thank you!
