We are inviting all our graduates and friends to adopt a book in the library. All donations to the campaign will go to the library Special Collections Fund to enable us to purchase valuable papers and materials when they come onto the market.
For every £30 you donate, we will recognise your support by placing a bookplate inside the front cover of a library book. You can even specify your chosen subject area. You will receive details of the book together with the classmark should you wish to view it on the shelf.
You may wish to consider adopting a book as a personal and unusual gift for a special occasion such as a birthday or as a thank you to your parents who have supported your time at University. Alternatively you may wish to commemorate a favourite professor, mark your graduation or dedicate a book to a friend.
You may inscribe your bookplate personally or have one electronically generated for you by the University.
Kerry Bryson, Director of Directorate for Advancement kick-started the project by adopting ‘The Rivals: The Intimate Story of a Political Marriage’ by James Naughtie our Chancellor.
We hope that you will support this initiative and thank you, in advance, for your donation.
