In spring of 2017, MU librarians created a Wish List of over 400 titles that would enhance teaching and research, but that could not be purchased due to budget limitations. The response from alumni and friends exceeded our highest expectations. Fifty-six donors purchased 105 books and electronic book collections, totaling $22,270 in gifts. The gifts generated a great deal of excitement within our library staff!
This year our librarians have again created a list of over 500 titles they would have liked to purchase to support teaching and research at MU. Some are replacements for titles that have been worn out or not returned for several years and some are new purchases. We hope there is something here for everyone’s budget. Go to library.missouri.edu/giving/wishlist to find a title of interest to you.
If you would like to help us add any of these titles to our collection, please select “Buy” in the righthand column, and follow instructions to purchase by credit card or check. If you need assistance with the purchase, Sheila Voss would be glad to help. E-mail or call Sheila at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-882-9168.
Thank you for supporting our University Libraries!
