Giving to the Library

Message from the Dean

I am honored to welcome you to San José State University's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. The library's purpose is to support the research and educational mission of the University. This is achieved through maintaining high-quality information resources, special collections, and archives in multiple formats, and through the collaboration among librarians, teaching faculty, and students. Our collaboration includes supporting students and faculty throughout the entire research cycle, from the formulation of topics to the publication and dissemination of the results and conclusions.

The King Library also serves as a physical space specifically designed for inspiration and collaboration, incorporating work and study areas, collections, interactive technologies, and other services, along with breathtaking views of downtown San José and the University campus.  

Research strongly suggests that students who use the library are more likely to get better grades and graduate earlier than those who do not, and faculty often report that their research is improved when they collaborate with librarians. Please click the links below to learn more about how to give to the King Library and support its important contributions to student and faculty success.

Library Endowments

Endowments are created with a gift of $50,000 and the establishment of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) outlining the purpose of the endowment. Gifts under $50,000 are considered pre-endowments, which need to be built up to a minimum balance of $50,000 within five years of being established to become a permanent endowment. Books acquired under each endowment will bear specially designed, individual bookplates created in consultation with the donor.

For more information, contact Ann Agee, Interim Dean of the University Library, at Ann.Agee@sjsu.edu.
