As a major academic unit of the University of Oregon, the UO Libraries receives regular requests to sponsor or cosponsor events and programs. Participation in campus events is an important element of the Library's outreach and service mission, and enhances positive connections to the campus community. Requested contributions include direct budget support and in-kind contributions. Please note that UO policies preclude the Libraries from waiving the Browsing Room use fee.
The Vice Provost and University Librarian or designee will evaluate all requests and determine the amount, nature, and source of the Libraries' contribution(s) to campus events. A prime consideration in making a decision to support any request will be an assessment of the initiative's relationship to the Libraries' mission and programmatic goals. To this end, the UO Libraries will give preference to events that feature an educational component and/or the use of information resources (e.g., lecture and speaker series, symposia, exhibits). Additionally, the UO Libraries will lend support to major campus-wide events and/or storied celebrations, especially at the behest of the University of Oregon Administration.
By submitting this form you attest that all the information contained herein is factual and that you are authorized by your organization to request funds from the UO Libraries. This form will be submitted to the Library Administration Office.
