A Message From University Librarian and Dean of Libraries Wendy Pradt Lougee

In 2017, the University of Minnesota Libraries received the National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries for service to the community. We are only the third academic library ever to win the Medal in the program’s 23-year history — a testament to our innovative work in supporting a diverse and expansive set of communities.

Through this campaign, we have chosen to build on our strengths, and we ask you to join us in Advancing Knowledge and Enriching Lives for those on our campuses, for residents throughout the cities and townships of Minnesota, and for scholars around the globe.
