Other Ways to Support the IUPUI University Library

Matching Gift

Matching gifts double or even triple the impact of your giving. Many businesses match their employees' gifts to higher education. Your human resources office can tell you if your company will match your gift and provide you with a form. Send us the completed form and we'll do the rest!

Honor with Books

A unique way to honor a stellar student or transformative teacher through an electronic book plate in the Indiana University online catalogue. If you are interested in this, please email Cortnee Yarbrough or call her at (317) 274-8061.

Book Donations

The University Library recognizes that community members have valuable books and book collections they might like to donate to the library. Due to space and cost limitations we rarely accept these types of donations. For more information please email Kevin Petsche or call him at (317) 278-2330.
