Gifts and Giving

  • Excellent library collections are sustained only with vigilance and generosity.

    COVID-19 Update: For the period of time that the Libraries are under limited operations, donations of materials in physical format cannot be accepted. Please understand that the logistics of organizing the drop off and the handling of books, periodicals, DVDs, and other materials are prohibitive as the health and safety of library personnel and visitors are prioritized. 

    Libraries are often described as the “intellectual center of the university.” At the IUP Libraries, we strive to fulfill that obligation by acquiring, maintaining, and providing access to the most up-to-date and excellent scholarly materials available. Our collections are designed to serve the IUP students, faculty, and community and serve as the heart of the IUP Libraries’ services.

    We are humbled by the generosity of the individuals who have given time, wealth, and resources to the IUP Libraries to aid us in our mission, and we celebrate their contributions.
