Projects Supported by the Friends of the Library
Bryn Mawr has one of the great liberal arts college libraries in the country, with more than a million volumes and nationally significant collections on the history of women, classical antiquity, the early development of printing, and many other fields.
Unfortunately, time and handling have taken their toll on many of the collection's books, resulting in broken bindings and damaged pages that put their long-term survival at risk.
The Library has embarked on a program of preserving and restoring its most important at-risk books to ensure that they will survive for the next generations of Bryn Mawr's students and faculty. Read more about the Preservation Program.
The generous support of donor endowed funds helps the libraries support the research and teaching mission of the College.
The Library's Endowed Funds List provides fund names, the areas of collection support, some historical information on each fund, as well as bookplate images (as available).
For reported funds, you may view a cumulative list of individual titles purchased, beginning with fiscal year 2003, by clicking on the fund's name.
