Here at KU Libraries, we are fortunate enough to be uniquely positioned at the crossroads of the educational process, bringing together the resources and expertise that KU students and faculty need to succeed.
The Official Sponsor of Tradition
We love to tell stories (with all the correct citations, of course). And our University Archives capture the story of KU — where we started, who brought us to where we are today, even how our mascot was hatched. From timeless traditions to those forgotten, this is just one piece of the Libraries’ diverse collections that contribute to research, teaching and learning at KU and beyond.
Private support is vital to the work we do. Your contribution, no matter the amount, benefits every student, faculty member and unit at KU. Make a gift today and become the official sponsor of KU Libraries.
Contact Rebecca Smith, Executive Director of Communications & Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-864-1761.
