Digital Bookplates


A digital bookplate is one of the ways the University Library recognizes your gift– it’s not only a way for us to say thanks, but a meaningful way for you to personally recognize a friend, celebrate a family member, or remember a mentor. It can also simply recognize your own contributions to the University Library.

 Each digital bookplate:

  • Displays an attractive, professionally designed university image.
  • Contains personalized text of your choosing which can honour or remember someone important to you.
  • Links to one or more titles in the University Library’s online catalogue.
