Giving to the Library
"This generation will soon pass away but the torch of learning will be handed down by the influence of this great library to generation after generation of Australian scholars."
Sir Normand MacLaurin, Chancellor, on the opening of the 'old' Fisher Library in 1909
The support of Friends, benefactors and the community, have over the years contributed immeasurably to the richness and significance of the Library's collections and resources. Through the Friends a tradition of private support is developing that will ensure the Library will continue to support, further and enrich scholarship at the University and across the nation.
The tangible expression of this support is welcomed through contributions to fund the acquisition of scholarly resources, notably those that cannot be provided from the Library's core funds.
The Library has benefited particularly through the generosity of bequests that provide substantial and perpetual endowments for the acquisition of significant resources essential for a great research library.
Gifts to the Library are tax deductible.
