McFarlin Library

At the heart of every great academic institution stands its library, and at The University of Tulsa, our own iconic McFarlin Library is no exception. As the TU’s Grand Dame since 1929, McFarlin has been the physical and academic center of our beautiful campus.

In its 80-year history, McFarlin has bolstered the research of thousands of scholars, informed countless research papers, and acquired more than 170,000 rare books, manuscripts, and other materials that are held in the university’s special collections.

The financial resources needed to sustain a world class library like McFarlin are vast. However, through the generous support of friends, alumni, and other benefactors of The University of Tulsa, we are able to provide TU students and faculty with the academic resources necessary to succeed in their scholastic enterprise.

The McFarlin Library Annual Fund for Excellence

This fund provides crucial unrestricted dollars to:

  • Meet the ever-increasing cost of scholarly journal subscriptions that are critical for research
  • Provide the ability to expand our access to other print and electronic information resources (books, journals, research databases, media, etc.)
  • Ensure the continual enhancement of campus computing resources
  • Enable McFarlin to continue acquiring important rare books and manuscripts for our special collections.

Through every gift to the library’s annual fund, no matter what the size, you leave a personal legacy in knowing your generosity has touched the academic life of a TU scholar.

Please contact Jenna Flugum, Associate Director of Annual Giving, at 918-631-3639 for information about giving to the McFarlin Annual fund.
