Make a Gift to the Library

By making a gift to the University Librarian Visionary Fund, you are actively supporting the academic drive and scholarly aspirations of our students and faculty.

The AU Library is dedicated to being an academic and research destination that provides access to information and research tools, along with expert and personalized guidance through the entire research process—including complex, multidisciplinary, and digital scholarship.

Regardless of location or program, the AU Library is a community network connecting students and faculty to the services and expertise they need to be successful—whether they are working on campus or across the globe.

Gifts to the University Librarian Visionary Fund provide critical funding and go to the Library's area of greatest need.

Honoring someone special through the Honor with Books or Video program. Parents, leave a lasting legacy for your student’s time at AU, even after graduation
