The CSUN Librarians Legacy Endowment was established by an anonymous donor in honor of CSUN librarians' continued success in meeting the growing institutional challenges and technological opportunities that accompany academic research and librarianship.  When fully funded, this endowment will support a paid internship for Collection, Access and Management Services (CAMS), in recognition of CSUN librarians' ongoing achievements and in remembering the careers of recently retired and departed Library faculty.

If you are interested in donating to the endowment, please contact Luann Rocha, Director of Development for the Oviatt Library, at 818-677-2635 or luann.rocha@csun.edu
