The University Libraries are home to a number of distinctive collections found nowhere else. Your giving in this area supports the expansion of these unique resources, enhances new scholarship, and provides needed funds to ensure their promotion to scholars worldwide.

The Black Gospel Music Restoration Project

The purpose of this project is to identify, acquire, preserve, record and catalogue the most at-risk music from the black gospel music tradition. This collection will primarily contain 78s, 45s, LPs, and the various tape formats issued in the United States and abroad between the 1940s and the 1980s. The ultimate goal is to have a copy of every song released by every black gospel artist or group during that time period.

Library Athletics Archive Excellence Fund

The Library Athletics Archive Excellence Fund supports the Baylor University Libraries Athletics Archive, an initiative founded with the Grant and Donell Teaff Baylor Football Collection that will eventually include items from all Baylor sports and eras, dating back to the beginning of the university. This fund supports equipment and labor required to present this timeless archive to the world and ensures that generations to come may relive the history of Baylor men's and women's sports.
