Giving to the Library
The purpose of the Associates of the University of the Pacific Library is building awareness of the Library's importance to the development of the University of the Pacific and the community at large. Associates' activities serve to promote the University Library and raise funds in support of its programs and unique resources.
From the Dean of the University Library
As the Dean of the University Library at Pacific, I am extending a special invitation to you to join me in becoming a member of the Associates of the University of the Pacific Library. As Dean of the University Library, it is my responsibility to lead our community in design of the University Library of the future, a library that meets the needs of Pacific students and faculty in this dynamic age of information discovery and delivery.
I am proud to be joined in this effort by the Associates of the University Library-a group of dedicated, energetic individuals who share an understanding of the special role of the University Library in serving Pacific's mission. They understand, too, the challenges of achieving this mission in the rapidly-evolving Information Age. For nearly 40 years, the Associates of the University Library have played a key role in advancing the programs and facilities of the University Library, providing funding for library collections and building expansion, scholarships for outstanding library student assistants, and public programs featuring the University Library's distinctive collections.
There has never been a more exciting and challenging time for higher education and for academic libraries. Won't you support us in creating the University Library of the future here at Pacific by becoming an Associate of the University of the Pacific Library?
With best wishes,
C. Brigid Welch
Dean of the University Library
