Giving to JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies

Imagine a place where creative exploration, the advancement of teaching and learning, and the curation of scholarship happen in tandem. Imagine an adaptable, user-focused organization that supports its community in the search for knowledge in myriad ways--physically, virtually, and logistically. If you can imagine this, then you have a good picture of JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies.

We bring knowledge resources to JMU's students, faculty, and the greater Harrisonburg community. Whether it's preserving the rich cultural history of the Shenandoah Valley or exploring the latest virtual reality and 3-D printing technologies, JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies are engaged with the world. Private support has allowed us to pursue a wide variety of creative projects.
