Giving to the Health Sciences Libraries

Thank you for your interest in supporting Temple University Health Sciences Libraries.

The Health Sciences Libraries are comprised of the Simmy & Harry Ginsburg Health Sciences Library serving the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and the College of Public Health, as well as the Temple University Hospital, and the Charles E. Krausz Library which serves the School of Podiatric Medicine.

Temple University Libraries serve as trusted keepers of the intellectual and cultural record. Gifts from friends like you ensure we continue collecting, preserving, and providing access to a broad universe of materials, including physical and digital collections, archives, ephemera, and the products of scholarly enterprise at Temple. Your support also helps us continually provide research and learning services, maintain open access to our facilities and information resources, and foster innovation and experimentation. 

Make a gift to the Libraries online or contact the Libraries' Department of External Affairs Advancement at 215-204-9305 or dwash@temple.edu. If making a gift to the Health Sciences Libraries online, please enter the name of the fund into the Other field at the bottom of the designations list.
