About the library endowment

Murphy Library Endowment Making a Difference

Maintaining the level of excellence expected in our academic community creates challenges for today's university libraries. In 1989, Murphy Library at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse established an endowment fund to support and enhance the special needs of the Library. Help us make a difference in the 21st century!

Support the Endowment

The Library has identified four major categories for endowment support: collection development, equipment, programming & development, and facility & environmental needs. The Endowment Fund is a pledge of excellence shared by donors who believe that the Library is a central part of the teaching and research mission of the University and an important educational and business resource in the community.

La Crosse in Light and Shadow: A Pictorial Recollection of La Crosse, Wisconsin edited by Douglas Connell and Edwin Hill is available for purchase.

Michael Blaser art work A painting commissioned for the Endowment. The original is in Special Collections.
