Gifts and Donations

The Ohio State University Health Sciences Library welcomes your gift to support our resources, services and programs. 

The Health Sciences Library relies on the support of many so we can continue to provide needed services to the students, faculty, staff and patients of our academic medical center.

Recent contributions have supported our online historical programs, furnishings for our new meditation room, and educational resources for more than 7,000 medical and health sciences students.

Your Gift Matters

There are so many ways to help the library continue to achieve our goals in innovation, education and research support. This year, we especially need your help for two vital and growing programs:

With your help, we will be able to increase our reach to ensure free access to critical health education resources, with a focus on traditionally underserved communities.

Your help is needed to fully equip this area and to continue the library's mission to advance innovation and foster education and research collaborations.

All gifts, small and large, make an impact. Please consider donating to these funds or others that may interest you.
