Small acts make a big difference.
#MoveInMiami is Miami University's fast-paced, online day of giving. Once a year, on the day Miami's newest first-year class moves in, alums and friends welcome them to the Miami community by supporting what they love about Miami University.
This #MoveInMiami on Thursday, Aug. 18, consider donating to support the academic success of all Miami's students, faculty, and staff by giving to the University Libraries.
The University Libraries are a mainstay in the Miami experience, and have been for centuries. And while we've remained true to our roots by continuing to provide the materials and spaces to fuel research and learning, we're also making smart investments in new technologies, services, and people to meet the needs of not just today's Miamians, but tomorrow's as well.
A gift to the Pressing Needs of the University Libraries will benefit all Miami students, faculty, and staff by supporting critical library resources and initiatives. With your support, we can continue to develop and offer tools that fuel discovery, inquiry, and success, like:
- The Makerspace, an open-door, experiential learning space where Miamians from every major can learn to use design thinking, rapid prototyping, and processes like laser cutting, 3D printing, multimedia production, and virtual and augmented reality in their academic and personal projects.
- MyGuide, a smart, custom-programmed web dashboard that shows students the most relevant resources, research guides, and librarians for the courses they're currently taking.
- Software checkout, which lets students check out licenses online for industry-leading software like the Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Pro, and Logic Pro to use on their own computers at no cost.
- Digitization of special collections and archives materials, which preserves Miami and Western College history and makes rare treasures discoverable to all.
