Giving to the Library

Printer-friendly version

Founded over 40 years ago, Stony Brook University Libraries are one of the youngest research libraries in the country. In this short time, we have grown, matured and launched many new services and technologies. On line technology has afforded our students, faculty and the community the opportunity to submit research questions, loan requests and even renew books right from their computers. Our reading rooms are filled from early morning to late at night with students studying, researching, working on our computers, or just socializing. The new state-of-the-art Music Library is equipped with sophisticated listening stations, a seminar room and comfortable study areas. In addition, we have our own Library Café where students, faculty and staff can mingle, chat or just mellow out over a cup of coffee.

Our vision for the future is exciting but uncertain due to continued state budget cuts and skyrocketing costs for books, journals and electronic resources. The library community has been supportive in the past and we know that your continued commitment to the library will play a role in securing the future successes, growth and excellence at Stony Brook University Libraries.
