How to Support the Libraries
Why Support the Smithsonian Libraries?
What distinguishes a room of unrelated treasures from a world-class exhibition? Who decides which objects should be exhibited and where to display them? Where do curators find resources to make exhibits come alive? Smithsonian curators and researchers rely on the Libraries to provide information to study, interpret and preserve our national collections of artifacts and specimens.
Every Gift Counts
The Libraries uses funds raised from donors like you for acquisitions, preservation, digitization, programs, fellowships, and interns. Your support allows us to reach new audiences and ensure our treasures are available for future generations.
