As part of the Library’s commitment to open access, the JCB is offering a special opportunity to assist in making our collection available to the widest public.

When you support our digitization program at the $150 level or above, we will attach an electronic ex-libris to a digitized item from our collection. Various textual and graphic options are available for the bookplate (see below). Each will be customized with your name by Mark Argetsinger, one of the leading book designers working in the United States today.

Please click below on a bookplate to see more detail and to choose the amount of your donation.

If you have a favorite book whose digitization you would like to sponsor, please write to and we will provide an estimate of the total cost.
