Transforming Tomorrow

Learn how the Georgia Tech Library continues to evolve and meet the changing research, teaching, and learning needs of Georgia Tech.

The Georgia Tech Library’s Top Priorities

Endow a Dean’s Chair: An endowed dean's chair provides a dean's discretionary fund to support innovative pilots, projects, and programs that align with the Library’s strategic plan and fulfill our academic and research mission.

Endow Public Programming and Outreach: Support for the Library’s innovative public programming and outreach will inspire audiences, share knowledge, and expand access for everyone in our community through lecture series, programming on various academic topics, and the Artist-in-Residence program.

Make Education Affordable -- Foster Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning: The costs of course materials have skyrocketed more than 1,000 percent since the 1970s. The Georgia Tech Library works to make education affordable. An endowment would support innovative solutions to ensure that faculty are partnering with the Library to provide students with the resources they need to be successful in the classroom, laboratory, and studio throughout their time at Georgia Tech.

Endow Archives and Special Collections: These endowments allow us to build our archives and special collections to better represent the many areas of expertise at Georgia Tech -- and the diversity of our contributors. The additional resources that an endowment provides help enhance and expand access to these collections for students, faculty, staff, and researchers across the globe.

Support Graduate Students: Support for graduate students allows the Georgia Tech Library to grow its capacity as a teaching library. Two major areas of graduate student support include:

  • Creation of a Post-Graduate Fellowship for recent graduates of library and information science and archival science programs; and
  • Development of a Georgia Tech iSchool (information science) track within the online master’s programs in Computer Science, Analytics, and Cybersecurity to create a highly skilled, technical talent pool within the library and archival professions.

Instructions for Form 8283

Gifts to the Georgia Tech Library are tax-deductible. If the value of the material is estimated at more than $5,000, and a tax expert recommends an appraisal, it should be completed before the material is turned over to Georgia Tech. In keeping with professional guidelines and with federal law, the Library cannot get involved in the evaluation or appraisal of gifts. The Internal Revenue Service considers the Library to be an interested party, which therefore precludes appraisals made or financed by Georgia Tech. For this reason, the donor is responsible for obtaining an appraisal and paying for the costs of appraisals. Because of the high cost of appraisals, they are not generally recommended unless the collection is very large or valuable. Library staff will assist donors in identifying an independent appraiser for tax purposes. For specific questions regarding charitable donations, donors should consult the website of the Internal Revenue Service.
