Support student success. Donate to the Library.
Your gift to the University Library is a direct investment in the spaces, resources and services we provide every day. With your help, the library supports student success by enhancing the student experience with innovative and flexible learning and study spaces, such as the Data Hub, which is on track to open in fall of 2021.
The new Library Data Hub, funded by your contributions, is a new location and service providing co-curricular and research support in the areas of geographic information systems, data sciences, data analysis and visualization, and research data management. Building on the library’s long history of curating and disseminating data under programs such as INSIDE Idaho, the Data Hub’s mission is to strengthen students’ knowledge, awareness and techniques for using data in transformative ways. It will be located in the Map Room, where specialized equipment, staff and space will be available to U of I Library patrons.
Your gift during Vandal Giving Day will help us unlock matching gifts provided by the Library Advisory Board and others. These much-needed funds will enable us to build our capacity as Idaho's foremost research library.
Your financial support allows us to grow, explore and commit to our vision of supporting student success across the curriculum, and building a world-class research library for our university community.
