Sponsor a Book


Memorial and Gift Book Program for the Doherty Library

Here is your opportunity to make a lasting gift or memorial. You can support the academic needs of the University for decades to come. Your decision to sponsor the cost of a book for the Doherty Library is a lasting, useful and very affordable donation. It will be appreciated for its thoughtfulness by both the person receiving the gift and by our library patrons. What is the cost of your generosity? A book sponsorship will cost $ 50 per hardcover book. A specific book title can be requested, but the cost to obtain a specific book will be determined on a title-by-title basis.

A sponsorship costs $ 50 per book if the library selects the book. The library will notify both the sponsor and the person receiving the gift when the sponsored book is added to the library collection. Simply mail your payment along with the sponsorship form to the Doherty Library.

If you would prefer to select a specific book for sponsorship, mail this form to the Doherty Library without payment and someone from the library will contact you about the cost. Keep in mind that only books that support the UST curriculum are acceptable.
