2017-18 Donor Honor Roll

The UCLA Library system is ranked among the top academic research libraries in North America and continues to draw international attention for its superlative collections and innovative use of technology.

To assure the Library’s support of UCLA’s acclaimed academic and research programs, private contributions are more important than ever. We are honored to thank the individuals, foundations, and corporations whose generous philanthropy has played a vital role in the continued success of the UCLA Library during the fiscal year from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018.


These members of the UCLA Legacy Society have included the UCLA Library in their estate plans.
