Honor With Books - A New Opportunity for Giving


Tisch Library is proud to announce its latest innovation, Honor with Books, which celebrates the accomplishments, milestones, notable events, and life of the special people whom donors wish to recognize.  A digital bookplate, noting either In Honor Of or In Memory Of, will be ascribed to a book or books in subject areas specified by the gift-giver.  The online catalog record for each item will display an image of the bookplate, which will link to the Honor with Books webpageAdditionally, a search forthe honoree’s name in the library’s catalog will retrieve the online record forthe title(s) of the book(s) chosen for the gift.  With a gift of $100, your honoree will be recognized with a new book within Tisch Library’s collection.  Gifts of higher amounts will allow us to recognize your tribute with more books. To view instructions and make your gift, please visit our instructions page.  We hope that you will celebrate the significant people in your life through this special Tufts tribute.
