UCLA library gets $5 million

February 11, 2009|Larry Gordon

The UCLA library has received a $5-million donation from the London-based Arcadia Fund in what officials said Tuesday was the single largest gift for library collections on the Westwood campus.

In expressing his thanks for the gift, which will be paid over five years, university librarian Gary E. Strong said the funds may be used to purchase new materials or to expand digitization efforts, among other things. The Arcadia Fund specializes in helping with the preservation of cultural knowledge, such as rare archives and artifacts, and the protection of threatened natural environments.
