  • Library Campaign Committee

    The Library Campaign Committee raises awareness of, and financial support for, the UMass Amherst Libraries.  Members of the committee serve as advocates for the Libraries—through financial support and outreach—on campus and throughout their own spheres of influence.  Targeted projects include the Learning Commons renovation, expansion of the Digital Media Lab, and building a 3-D printing Innovation Center.

    The Director of Libraries welcomes the assistance of alumni and friends interested in philanthropic support of the UMass Amherst Libraries.  If you are interested in joining please contact Carol Connare at (413) 545-0995 or friends@library.umass.edu.
