The University's Information Hub
The UVM Libraries are northern New England’s premier public research center. We are leaders in addressing the information needs of our diverse learning communities and creating access to a world of resources. We are a vital component of the university’s commitment to excellence in instruction, innovation in research and scholarship, and dedication to public service.
Move Mountains: The Campaign for the University of Vermont will invest in this vital asset for the university, and for the state of Vermont and its people. We invite you — alumni, friends and community members — to help strengthen the physical place of the libraries as well as our virtual collection. Join us.
Endowed Librarians: $2.5 million
Our hope is to add an endowed digital initiatives librarian, an expert dedicated to making our unique research collections accessible to students, faculty and citizens as well as a global audience of scholars. We also seek to create two Green & Gold Professorships — one in manuscripts and archives, and a full-time directorship at the Center for Teaching and Learning.
Emerging Technology: $1 million
Campaign support will allow us to acquire the new technologies needed for our digital initiatives as well as hardware and software for the multimedia lab, which faculty and students rely on for research and presentations. We hope to transform space at Dana Medical Library into a 21st-century learning commons; at Bailey/Howe, we want to invest in the data visualization lab so that it becomes a centralized resource for specialized applications.
Graduate and New Professional Library Science Internship: $1 million
UVM libraries are committed to core values, such as respect, integrity, service and diversity. Through the campaign, we seek to advance these core values by creating an internship program for library science graduate students or new professionals of color. Interns will work on discrete projects, helping advance our strategic goals while also gaining valuable experience in an academic library setting.
