Longtime Washington State University supporters and alumni Mike and Liz Johnson are making the largest-ever commitment to The Libraries at WSU, a bequest valued at $3.2 million. By naming the libraries as beneficiary of their estate, the Kirkland, Wash., couple looks to ensure the libraries keep pace in the future with the ever-changing ways information is stored and shared.



Library Excellence Award - 2012

Posted: June 12, 2012 -- steve_taylor

The WSU Libraries would like to congratulate the winner of this year's Library Excellence Award, Dr. Barbara A. Ward of the Department of Teaching and Learning. Ward has demonstrated her support of the libraries not only through the inclusion of a library component in her classes, but also through extraordinary personal generosity. Her donations of juvenile literature to the Education Library have been exceptionally substantial, allowing the Education collections budget to be redirected to other much needed materials.
