New Faculty Library Fund

All new Tenure Track and Teaching and Professional Track faculty are eligible for $1,000 in one-time purchases of physical or digital information resources that support research and teaching at the University of Denver. Made possible through an annual gift from the University Library Association (ULA), the New Faculty Library Fund (NFLF) is available for one-time purchases and does not apply to journal or database subscriptions. New faculty members can make use of the NFLF one time for up to two years following their start date at DU.

Examples of materials that are eligible for purchase through the NFLF include:

  • Books
  • E-books
  • DVDs
  • Streaming video
  • Maps
  • Images
  • Data sets
  • Archival and manuscript materials

NFLF materials must complement the collection and be accessible to all library users.

In collaboration with Subject Librarians and the Curator of Special Collections & Archives, the Collections & Content Management Librarian makes final determinations on NFLF purchases. As always, if there are materials you’d like the Libraries to acquire, whether you’re a new faculty member or a longer-term faculty member, please talk with your library liaison.

If you have additional questions about the NFLF or would like to proceed with using your funds, contact your library liaison and Shannon Tharp, Collections & Content Management Librarian.
