The library is the one academic space at UC Davis that is equally available to all students across all disciplines and can provide shared study spaces and technological resources that are not available in every department on campus. Sustaining a world-class library that truly meets the needs of today’s students is one of the few initiatives the university can undertake, in partnership with our donors, which will touch them all.

The library supports students by creating study oases, upgrading our electronic and physical resources, offering  classes on how conduct research and validate information sources, providing consultative services for specific projects, and awarding student prizes to promote and reward excellence in undergraduate information research.

There is no other place on campus where you can directly affect the teaching, learning and research opportunities of all UC Davis students more so than through a gift to the UC Davis Library.
