“I can tell you, as a dean and as a faculty member, that there’s no asset more critical to the University than its Library.” - Ed Macias, Provost
With more than 4 million books and other holdings and 12 libraries on three campuses, the University Libraries are the academic heart of Washington University. Facilities include the renovated main library and new libraries serving the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences and the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.
Because the Libraries support scholarship in each and every discipline taught here gifts to the Libraries benefit the entire University community and ensure that Washington University will maintain its level of excellence for generations to come. We do not graduate students, but consider all Washington University graduates our alumni.
