Support from parents has helped build the UCI Libraries into the extraordinary resource it is today. Each day, thousands of students enter library buildings to use computers and books, work in groups, or study quietly. They depend on the Libraries' collections, services and spaces for inspiration and learning outside of the classroom. Whether it is doing research in the stacks, collaborating with classmates over an assignment, or napping in a quiet corner, students find what they need to thrive at the Libraries.
The tradition of support established by UCI parents for the Libraries helps ensure our students have access to the information resources and study spaces they need to explore, discover, and advance our communities. Over 50% of the Libraries' annual donors are UCI parents - a statement of their belief in the importance of the Libraries, the university, and community at large.
Support from alumni ensures that the Libraries remain the campus’ gateway to knowledge, whereby our students and our university can advance to even greater success!
We sincerely appreciate the support of all Anteaters as it reflects both their understanding of the fundamental role the Libraries play in the lives of students, and the importance of giving back and impacting the growing academic reputation of their alma mater. As the primary intellectual resource for the campus, the Libraries help fulfill UCI's commitment to excellence, to remain competitive with peer institutions, and to attract the very best faculty and students.
Support and involvement from young alumni is especially meaningful as they make up a large percentage of all undergraduate alumni and are key to the strength and ongoing excellence of the Libraries.
We are grateful for the support of our community friends who truly value knowledge and lifelong learning.
