Welcome to the Library Endowments web page!

This page acknowledges all books purchased from earnings on endowment gifts since 1998. 

Each endowment has its own bibliography. You can navigate to the list of books in each endowment using the tabs to the left or by clicking the endowment name below. Books are listed under the year in which they were purchased, with the most recent year at the top. If you hover your cursor over the book title, a synopsis of the book appears. Clicking on the book title will open the record for the book in the library’s online catalog, where you can see a table of contents and request library staff to hold the book at the desk for you to pick up. Happy browsing!

The Maryville College Library relies solely on the income from endowments to purchase books for our collection. We are so thankful for the people who have remembered and honored us with their gifts. Because of their unparalleled generosity, our current students have the opportunity to explore the rich world of ideas that opens from reading good books.
