Giving to JMU Libraries

Rose LibraryLibrary services are changing.

We are providing JMU students and faculty with access to new collections, databases, and journals.

We are bringing JMU faculty and students together with new classroom technologies and teaching tools.

We are now three libraries:  Carrier Library, Rose Library, and Music Library.

We are growing and changing.  And you can be a part of that change.

About JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies

JMU Libraries include Carrier Library, Rose Library, and the Music Library.  JMU Libraries has been an innovator of the library liaison program in which librarians build a collaborative working relationship with their academic departments to provide subject-specific library instruction, research consultation, and to develop collections.  JMU Libraries’ awarding-winning Information Literacy program provides our students with skills for lifelong learning.  JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies also includes the Center for Instructional Technology, which provides university faculty with proactive support for technological innovation in instruction; and Technology Classrooms, whose staff install and maintain computing and multimedia technology in classrooms across the campus.
