Barr Smith Library Appeal
The Barr Smith Library Annual Appeal is on for 2006. Now in its fifth year, the Appeal is a vital way of raising funds for one of the University's most treasured - and utilised - resources.
"The Appeal funds allow us to maintain our status as the major research library in South Australia and one of the major ones in Australia," said University Librarian Ray Choate.
As a resource utilised by staff, students, alumni and the wider community alike, Mr Choate believes it is important for the Barr Smith Library to maintain a well-rounded collection.
"The Library appreciates having the ability to acquire introductory and research study materials outside the immediate needs of student courses and research priorities," said Mr Choate. "In this way we can maintain a `rounded' collection which allows students, staff and alumni users to find information on a wide range of disciplines, including current events. The Appeal funds are very useful in achieving these ends."
Use the last days of the financial year to make a real difference to the Barr Smith Library - all gifts received before June 30 will be eligible for tax-deductibility for the 2006 financial year.
