Support the Library

A Gift to The University Library Supports All Students

Ask alumni where they studied as students at SDSU and they’ll likely tell you “the Library.” The iconic glass dome of the University Library is the entry point to a wealth of physical and digital resources, state-of-the-art technology and a variety of flexible spaces to study, create and collaborate.

Overseeing these resources is an exceptional team of library faculty and staff. During this COVID pandemic, these Library professionals are constantly innovating to meet the evolving information, curricular and research needs to support faculty research and student success.

Here's How You Can Help

Make an impact on student success with a gift to one of these key University Library funds:

The SDSU Comic Arts Collection includes more than 100,000 published comics in addition to archival collections and ephemera, mini-comics and zines, cartoons in historic magazines, and a modest amount of original comic art.
