Over the past year, the Library has received significant support from student organizations to assist with the purchase of resources and materials for students.
Student support has included donations from the Arts, Engineering, and Math Endowment Funds.
The Arts Endowment Fund (AEF) recently equipped the Dana Porter Library with 10 new study carrels and chairs, a donation totaling $13,099.97. In the words of Allan Babor, Arts Student Union President, “the study carrels not only bring forth an ergonomic workspace, but contribute to the overall appeal of the library as a social and study space and will benefit the greater UW community for the next five to ten years."
The Waterloo Engineering Endowment Fund (WEEF) provided $5,000 to help the Library purchase first-year engineering textbooks to be held on reserve at the Davis Centre Library.
The Math Endowment Fund (MEF) donated $14,040 to enable the purchase of study carrels and chairs for the Davis Centre Library. This gift was preceded by a $6,750 donation the previous year for the same purpose.
The Library thanks AEF, WEEF, and MEF for their generous support.
