  • Expansion of research and book collections.
  • Preservation and conservation efforts in the Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation of the River Campus Libraries.
  • Improvements to University of Rochester Libraries' technologies.
  • Support for innovative library learning and research spaces.
  • Acquisition of databases and other nonprint formats.

  • Digitization and online cataloging of the Libraries' special collections.
