Support the Poetry Collection
Gifts from alumni and friends enable the Poetry Collection to continue serving as the library of record for 20th- and 21st-century poetry in English. Each year the collection supports with its materials a wide range of scholarly publications, opens its doors to visiting researchers from around the world, and assists the educational activities of undergraduate and graduate students at UB and elsewhere. Furthermore, the collection hosts numerous lectures, conferences, readings, and other events, making it an active research center for the study of modern and contemporary poetry.
Your support helps to provide for the acquisition, organization, preservation, digitization and exhibition of books, magazines, journals and important literary archives. Donations are tax deductible and help support the research and teaching missions of the Poetry Collection.
