The Penn Libraries’ diverse and distinctive collections are the lifeblood of the University’s teaching, research, and learning enterprise. Our extensive and heavily-used information resources — some of the finest in the world— span all formats, including print materials, electronic journals, audio recordings, films, and digitized holdings. These materials fuel the transformative scholarship emerging from Penn and establish the Penn Libraries as an international destination for global scholarship. Your support allows us to expand the diversity and accessibility of our resources in order to meet and exceed the ever-evolving needs of our community of students, faculty, and researchers.
