The 'Necks' Big Thing

The 'Necks' Big Thing for the Heart of Campus

University Libraries remains the vibrant heart of Western, serving as dynamic centers for knowledge, expertise, and multimedia engagement.

Last year, we highlighted our pride in providing a vast array of resources, from books and music to e-books, videos, and games, catering to our students' and community members' diverse interests and research needs.

This year, we call upon your continued support to ensure the sustainability and growth of these invaluable resources on both our Macomb and Quad Cities campuses.

Your Western Challenge gift empowers us to enhance our collections, expand access to cutting-edge research materials, and foster an environment where curiosity thrives while preserving the essence of intellectual exploration and lifelong learning.
