Today and every day, I think about the big picture—for this state, for our nation, for the world. So although I’m writing you to ask for your support of UNLV University Libraries, I want you to consider what I’m really asking for by doing so: your commitment to our past, which exists only if we care enough about its preservation; your commitment to our future, which rests in the hands of our children and is shaped by how we educate them; and your commitment to our present, which is the only time we have to take action and make a difference.
The UNLV University Libraries are different from your average libraries and are positioned to serve a variety of communities in a truly unique capacity. UNLV Libraries have built a one-of-a-kind collection that immortalizes the rich history of Southern Nevada, vital to the success not only of the Las Vegas community, but of casino and hospitality industries around the world. UNLV Libraries are innovative, bringing cutting-edge technologies and resources to students and faculty alike so they can become leaders in their fields. UNLV Libraries empower learners of all ages from all walks of life to evolve and achieve greater heights through unique programs, exhibits and events.
However, the UNLV University Libraries cannot do any of this without your help. Therefore, I humbly ask you to consider the following gift amounts and what they can provide:
- $50 covers the cost of a podcast or the production of an instructional YouTube video
- $100 covers the cost of an e-book, textbook, or an hour-long session with a research specialist
- $200 covers the cost of processing a small special collection box
- $300 covers the cost to digitize and preserve one oral history
- $500 covers the cost of a research clinic for graduate students
The above examples highlight specific ways that your generous support helps the UNLV University Libraries serve our communities, but any and all gifts matter. And your gift’s impact only begins at UNLV University Libraries. It will continue well beyond those walls, transforming inquiries into information literacy, researchers into leaders, and individuals into collaborative communities.
Please help the UNLV University Libraries accomplish this.
With hearty thanks in advance for your investment,
Caty Crockett, Chairperson
