Give to the College
UNM’s College of University Libraries & Learning Sciences is unique, consisting of the University Libraries system and the Organization, Information & Learning Sciences (OILS) program.
Every part of the university depends on the library. Investing in the College is your opportunity to support the most important tool on campus for student success and will advance our key initiatives:
Student success and support
Building unique collections
Improving library spaces and resources
Digital initiatives and big data
Thank you for your support.
Gifts to the College support the purchase of collections, support improvements to the equipment and facilities for our students and ensure we continue to be an excellent resource for students, faculty and the community.

The Dean’s Circle of Giving is an organization of individuals dedicated to promoting and supporting the mission of the College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences.
Gifts to the Dean’s Circle of Giving support the strategic direction that the Dean sets for the college and impacts the success of faculty, staff and students at the University of New Mexico. Dean’s Circle funds are used to support outreach and development efforts, to establish and deepen the relationships of the college with our supporters and our community and for time-sensitive acquisitions.

University Libraries gratefully accepts gifts and contributions for the development of its collections. Gifts are accepted based on the same criteria as new acquisitions. Quality and relevance to the needs of UNM determine additions to the collection. In general we do not add duplicate materials and we do not accept journals or magazines.
Gifts can be dropped off at any of the four libraries. If you choose, you can complete a UNM Deed of Gift Form for your donation. Gifts that are dropped off without the Deed of Gift Form will be considered anonymous donations. University Libraries cannot provide donors with a list or appraisal of their donation.
To make advance arrangements to drop off your gift contact Sever Bordeianu, Director of Technical Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or (505) 277-2645.
