Philanthropy's Impact on the Libraries

When we say your giving makes a difference, we don't just mean figuratively. In a literal sense, every gift to the University Libraries provides a service, a resource, or a space that directly affects the scholarly success of one of our students, faculty, or visiting researchers. Here are a few of the ways your philanthropy toward the Libraries shapes the future for Baylor University.

Named Spaces

There are many spaces throughout the University Libraries named in honor of generous benefactors spanning back to the earliest days of the university. Their legacies and names endure in places like the Joe Allbritton Foyer (Moody Memorial Library), the Prichard Family Information Commons (Moody Memorial Library), the Ray I. Riley Digitization Center (Moody Memorial Library) and the Frances C. Poage Map Room (The Texas Collection). A gift at this level ensures future generations of Baylor students will recognize the enduring legacy of Baylor's proudest supporters.

Crucial Resources

Baylor's attaining R1-Tier1 status - a designation that represents the highest levels of academic, scholarly, and research output - underscores the need for access to new scholarly resources. From journals dedicated to highly specialized scientific areas to Open Educational Resources (OER), the Libraries are at the crucial junction of expertise, acquisition, and access that undergirds the university's advancing research agenda.
