A gift to Milner directly supports all students
Thousands of students use Milner Library each day. They rely on us for resources, instruction, and support as well as for accessible, comfortable places to study, learn, and collaborate. Milner also works hard to keep pace with the technology needs of our students with printing, copying, scanning, and our MakeIt@Milner maker resources such as 3-D printing. Additionally, Special Collections and University Archives excel at preserving history and rare items so that our students have hands on experience with our unique resources, learning to use them in their research.
A gift to Milner Library is one way to impact all students. With your help, we can continue to be campus hub supporting student success, research, and instruction while continuing the proud tradition of service started by our namesake and the University’s first librarian, Ange V. Milner.
