Donating to the Library

Monetary Donations

The Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center welcome monetary contributions. The current “information age” has seen both rapid increases in the publication of scholarly materials and the demand for access to these resources. Unfortunately, the cost of providing these publications has risen as well.

Your generous gifts help the library continue to provide the best resources to support our students, faculty, and staff in their academic endeavors. For information about how you can contribute financially to the library’s mission, please contact the Office of University Advancement at 770.720.5507 or
