Libraries grateful for increased support

Private support for The University of Mississippi Libraries continues to grow at a tremendous rate. When the fiscal year ended on June 30, 2014, private support from alumni, friends, faculty and staff totaled $688,999, a 159 percent increase from fiscal year 2013. This increase includes endowment support, which has more than doubled over the past year. This growth is only made possible with supports like you.

Not only are we growing our support in overall dollars, we are experiencing an increase in support from alumni as well as an increase in participation through our Phonathon efforts. We appreciate you taking the time to visit with our student callers as they share the need of your annual support to the libraries.

Your generosity has enabled numerous enhancements for our library. I thank you for supporting the entire university community through gifts to the libraries.

I hope you will consider making a commitment this year to the University Libraries. I ask that you view the Libraries’ Wish List included in this edition of Keywords. Each listing covers a great need within our library. Help us continue to offer our students and faculty the very best.

Commit to another fantastic year. Commit to The University of Mississippi Libraries.
