The UC San Diego Library is committed to building robust research collections to meet the wide-ranging and increasingly interdisciplinary research and instruction requirements of our users. Given the rapid rise of the output of available resources, combined with rising costs of and the decreasing value of the dollar on the world markets, the Library uses a variety of strategies and funding sources to support our collections acquisition program. In addition to UC funding from the State of California, we rely on donations, as well as specially established endowment funds to acquire resources in specific areas. Detailed information on how you can help support and enhance the Library collection is contained in the links below. Together we can contribute to the success of the UC San Diego Library.
