The 2023 Orrery Society Annual Report highlights recent collections acquisitions made possible by generous supporters of information resources at Penn. These strategic acquisitions ensure our collections stay abreast of global trends and research interests, fueling Penn’s academic enterprise.
The Orrery Society recognizes donors who support information resources at a leadership giving level. Orrery Society members serve as the Penn Libraries’ ambassadors for acquisitions and collection development, digitization, conservation, and librarian travel.
The Orrery Society has two major objectives:
- To expand access to scholarly information through term and endowed support for acquisitions, digitization, and conservation, annual gifts in support of collections, and gifts of in-kind collections;
- To expand University and alumni awareness of the importance information plays in helping the University achieve its scholarly mission.
