UD students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends can now support the William A. Blakley Library while making their usual book, music or household purchases. Through a new partnership which Amazon offers to libraries in the United States, a portion of any purchase—books, music, apparel, electronics, etc.—made from the online retail giant through this link will go to the university's library.
"All you have to do is click the link and then make your purchase," said Cherie Hohertz, access services librarian. "That's all there is to it."
Proceeds from the new partnership, which will continue indefinitely, are tentatively earmarked for new study area furniture in the study areas and new materials for the collection.
"We're encouraging faculty and staff to share the link with anyone who would want to support the library— alumni, students, family members," said Cherie Hohertz, access services librarian. "Every little bit helps."
