Over the years endowed funds for collection development have played an important role in the growth and success of the University of Pennsylvania Library. Many Classes have shown their support of Penn by supporting its heart, the Libraries.

Members of the Classes of 1883 and 1884 endowed a fund for general Libraries acquisitions. More than a century later, their gift continues to provide new resources for today's — and tomorrow's — students.
