The University of California, Irvine has launched a historic $1 billion comprehensive campaign to shape the future through the excellence of the campus. Essential to its success are the UCI Libraries, the foundation of the university’s intellectual strength and innovation.

“The Libraries are central to the success of the university and this campaign presents wonderful opportunities for supporters to make a significant impact for all our students and faculty,” said Gerry Munoff, University Librarian.

"This campaign presents wonderful opportunities for supporters to make a significant impact for all our students and faculty."

The Campaign for the Libraries will enhance the Libraries’ collections, services and outreach programs, grow our staff and facilities, and expand our information technologies.

Three areas are campaign priorities:

  • Libraries of Excellence
    As the campus grows, we must sustain the highest standard of personalized services, strengthen our research staff, and expand space for students and collections.
  • Collections of Excellence
    Faculty and students in all schools and disciplines on campus rely on the comprehensive electronic and print collections of the Libraries. We must sustain the quality of the collections to support our growing and new academic programs across campus.
  • Digital Learning and Research
    Global scholarship increasingly relies on robust and innovative digital communication and networked computing. The Libraries must constantly enhance our information technology and services that insure delivery of the Libraries’ resources and services to our students and faculty, and the community.

The Campaign for the Libraries website at www.lib.uci.edu/partners/campaign offers opportunities to support the Libraries and provides important news and information as the campaign progresses.

We are very grateful for the support we have received from many people throughout the community and across campus. The Campaign for the Libraries will be successful because of the dedication and generosity of our friends. Thank you!
