The Friends of the SMU Libraries Endowment Fund was established in 1992 to secure a permanent source of funds to enhance the budgets of the SMU libraries, to assure the quality of the libraries for the future, and to allow Friends of the SMU Libraries to provide continuous support not solely dependent on membership dues.
