Dear supporters,

I am pleased and excited to share this annual impact report with you. Our staff has worked so hard this year and I hope you see as well as I do the impact they are making on campus, around the state of Minnesota, and throughout the world.

Thank you for your engagement with the University of Minnesota Libraries — be it through accessing our resources and expertise online or in person, by attending one of our Friends Forum events, or through a philanthropic gift. We are grateful for your support.
