University Libraries
Support the Libraries
Thank you for your interest in supporting Temple University Libraries.
Temple University Libraries serve as trusted keepers of the intellectual and cultural record. Gifts from friends like you ensure we continue collecting, preserving, and providing access to a broad universe of materials, including physical and digital collections, archives, ephemera, and the products of scholarly enterprise at Temple. Your support also helps us continually provide research and learning services, maintain open access to our facilities and information resources, foster innovation and experimentation, and ensure that the groundbreaking new Charles Library operates at its full promise. View Charles Library funding opportunities here.
