Digital Bookplates

A unique opportunity to leave a legacy...

Through the University Libraries' Digital Bookplate Program, donors are able to support research and learning across the Northeastern community by helping to expand the Library's collections.

Once a gift or an endowment is fulfilled through the program, the Library is able to add materials to our collection and the donor's bookplate is linked in the online catalog to each new purchase made with the funds of the gift. Digital bookplates are a lovely way to honor a donors' interests, achievements, or memories of their colleagues, mentors, parents, grandparents, graduates, advisors, and professors. They are easy to share with friends and family and they provide a lasting remembrance of important milestones.
