Baylor Book Society & Library Endowed Book Fund
As Baylor University makes great strides to achieve R1/Tier1 status, the University Libraries are committed to supporting new areas of research and scholarship through a robust endowed fund for the acquisition of new research materials. Currently, the Library Endowed Book Fund holds just short of $400,000. The University Libraries have set a goal of a $1 million balance to help support Baylor's research aspirations.
Your gift to the Library Endowed Book Fund, in any amount, goes toward the purchase of materials that support the broad range of research being conducted by Baylor faculty and students. In particular, your gift will support materials for research in burgeoning fields like data science, health, materials science, and Latin American studies, all of which are areas highlighted in "Illuminate," Baylor's strategic plan.
Donors to the Library Endowed Book Fund automatically become Library Fellows by giving $1,000 or more annually through their support of this project. Learn more about the benefits of being a Library Fellow here.
Gifts to the Library Endowed Book Fund will be used to acquire materials that support research across all of Baylor's academic endeavors. To support a specific category of material, please visit the Research Libraries, Institutes and Centers page to explore additional giving opportunities. All giving toward this opportunity is counted toward your status as a Library Fellow.
