Thank you for viewing the funding priorities for Virginia Tech's University Libraries! We strongly encourage unrestricted gifts to the Library Excellence Fund, which enable Dean Tyler Walters to capitalize on strategic opportunities and overcome challenges as we strive to become a top research library.
Additionally, some of our funding priorities are highlighted below. Should you desire additional information or wish to make a gift please call Kevin Weaver at 540-231-0793.
University Libraries services nearly 60 bachelor's degree programs and another 100 master's and doctoral degree programs. Students and faculty in these programs rely on the print and electronic information and attending information services we provide. As materials costs increase, we appreciate collections support in all disciplinary areas at Virginia Tech.
Whether your interest is in our extensive Civil War collection, the International Archive of Women in Architecture, the University Archives, genealogy, the Culinary Collection, or any other of the wonderful materials in special collections, we welcome your support. The need for program funds for each collection is particularly acute.
The scope of a Virginia Tech librarian's work cannot be overstated. With only 35 librarians to serve nearly 28,000 students and 1300 instructional faculty, we must not fall further behind our peer institutions in recognizing the vital work of our librarians.
Our students are clear in their messages to us in our annual survey. They generally tell us two things: "your service is great" and "the space could use some updates, a cafe, and modern furniture... preferably with padding!"
