In January 2014, I became Emory’s new university librarian, and I am excited by all that I have seen and experienced in the ensuing months. From renovating and expanding facilities to launching the widely praised Battle of Atlanta self guided tour app, Emory Libraries and Information Technology continues to move forward in support of our patrons and university.
Annual gifts are responsible for much of this progress. These contributions enable Emory Libraries to acquire unique, primary source additions to the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL); fund research programs for graduate and undergraduate students; and operate the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship, a centralized digital services resource for teaching and research housed in the Robert W. Woodruff Library.
Ongoing annual support also helps fund programs and exhibitions that engage the campus and the community. This past year, the libraries displayed rare materials from MARBL’s collection of work by the late Nobel Poet Laureate Seamus Heaney, hosted free public programs featuring Pulitzer Prize winners Paul Muldoon and Sharon Olds, and much more.
We are seeking new ways to captivate and enlighten our library friends. We appreciate your past contributions and hope that you will consider renewing your annual gift as the new academic year begins.
