Library Diversity Fund

The University of Oregon Libraries has long upheld the value of diversity* in all its forms. Through visual displays, multi-media, books and DVDs, we strive to encourage and foster these values. The Library has set aside funds to purchase materials to add to our diversity collections. The fund is open to all members of the University community. Students, staff, groups, and faculty alike may nominate materials for possible purchase by submitting their request online.
