Funding priority: Library Fund

As technology continues to transform the world around us, the UC Berkeley Library turns to its time-honored mission: to help people find and evaluate knowledge to build a better future. A gift to the Library Fund supports every aspect of that work, maintaining the services, spaces, and scholarly materials that benefit the university community, and in turn, the world.
