Support the UO Libraries

As the state’s only member of the prestigious Association of Research Libraries, the University of Oregon Libraries plays a crucial role in all teaching, learning, and research activities on campus.

A gift to the UO Libraries has the broadest possible impact on campus, because our facilities serve all students and all faculty across all disciplines. From the Loyd and Dorothy Rippey Library at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology in Charleston to the Knight Library at the heart of campus, each of our eight libraries strive to meet the rising demand for resources and services necessary for creating knowledge and promoting excellence in all academic pursuits.
