The need for library resources, expert staffing, and relevant physical environments are critical for the Libraries to maintain its role in advancing Drexel University as a comprehensive research university focused on the rapidly changing needs of the 21st century learner. Your generosity will support the Libraries' ability to serve as collaborators in education and research and active participants in fostering intentional self-directed learning outside of the classroom, both in physical and virtual spaces.
Invest in the Drexel Libraries
Libraries are the place where learners and researchers at all levels and from all disciplines can gather together to collaborate or work alone among others to discover and explore ideas. A gift to the Libraries is not just an investment in the organization, but an investment in Drexel’s faculty and student research and learning, as well as in the surrounding community and in the preservation of Drexel history.
Donate a Piece of Drexel history
You can help document and preserve the history of Drexel University by donating or transferring materials to the University Archives, sharing your Drexel experience through an oral history recording, or submitting published papers and research materials to the Drexel Research Discovery portal.

Gifts in Kind
We are grateful to Drexel University alumnae/i and friends who have donated resources to the Libraries that support the University’s academic curriculum, research and student experiences.
While we recognize that donors value materials they offer for donation, not every item or collection is a good fit for the Drexel Libraries. Generally, the Libraries no longer accepts donations of books or other physical materials for our general collection, but we welcome the opportunity to review materials that document the University’s history.
We ask that all prospective donors consult with our staff before arranging to have gifts delivered to the Libraries. Gifts may be accepted in whole, in part, or be declined.
The following local organizations may consider donations not directly related to the history of Drexel University or its Libraries collections:
