"Preserve Our Resources" Campaign

The WSU Foundation and University Libraries are currently conducting a funding campaign to help
preserve critical library resources such as journals and databases. Donors are invited to provide full
or partial support of a specific resource (see list below), make a gift to help a specific subject area,
or make a contribution to help the collection at large.

The following is a list of 150 essential resources that should be preserved for the WSU community,
now and in the future. The items are organized by college, and the title of each item links to a

detailed description of that item.
A separate list of much-needed library furnishings is also provided. Information is also provided about price increases for books and journals in general areas over time.

To make a contribution to help preserve a specific resource or some area of the collection in general,
please fill out the response card you received in the mail and return it to the WSU Foundation. If
you do not have a response card, click here for a copy. You may also contact the WSU Foundation at 
316-978-3441 or through their Web site. Thank you for helping to preserve our library resources!
