Since its 2005 founding, University Library Foundation supports the Library's Book-adoption Program. By means of it adopters can support protection (restoration, digitization, etc.) of the historical documents of the Library, as well as other goals of the Foundation.
SAVE A BOOK – ADOPT IT!
The University Library’s collection has been expanding since 1561. The library holdings include almost 1.5 million books which need constant conservation and preservation, while some are already in urgent need of restoration. The main objectives of the adoption program are preventive protection as well as conservation and restoration of the books and of other documents written on parchment or paper-based objects which are held in the collection of the University Library.
