Giving Builds the Armacost Library!

The University of Redlands relies on the philanthropic generosity of alumni and other donors to add valuable and interesting books and other information resources to the physical and online collections at the Armacost Library.  A few of the endowed library funds and their uses:
  • The Stauffer Fund covers, in part, the annual subscription to SciFinder Scholar, the American Chemical Society’s amazing, multifaceted, premier online Chemistry database.
  • The Quillin Fund is used for book purchases in Economics and Business.
  • The Moore Fund is used for purchases of History resources.  See some Moore titles below.
The Library also receives a portion of the University’s Prince Ahmed Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud Fund to purchase annual access to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online database, and books.  Many fine titles acquired through the generosity of Prince Ahmed will be used and on display during this year’s Muslim Journeys programming.  Watch this blog for Prince Ahmed titles and program information.
