Thousands of Northeastern University alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends recognize the impact of a great, world-class, research library in an academic community. 

Thank You Supporters!

With the funds, gifts, books, art, manuscripts, and archival materials received by the Northeastern University Libraries each year, the library is able to expand its collections, make building improvements, procure new library services, accomplish high priority building projects, and acquire print and electronic resources to support the growing needs of the University.

The library must be a resource that provides the information and tools necessary for faculty and scholars to produce breakthroughs and innovations. It is with the support of our donors that the library can continue to enhance the breadth and quality of its resources to be counted among the country's finest academic research libraries.
