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.
Donors to the Library Endowed Book Fund automatically become Library Fellows and members of the Baylor Book Society by giving $1,000 or more annually through their support of this project. Learn more about the benefits of being a Library Fellow here.
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.
