Temple University Libraries serve as trusted keepers of the intellectual and cultural record. Gifts from friends like you ensure we continue collecting, preserving, and providing access to a broad universe of materials, including physical and digital collections, archives, ephemera, and the products of scholarly enterprise at Temple. Your support also helps us continually provide research and learning services, maintain open access to our facilities and information resources, and foster innovation and experimentation.

Impact the Libraries in a number of ways:

Annual Funds support yearly operating budgets and ongoing needs for the Libraries over the course of each fiscal year.
