Hardy Boys Books $ 1500-50,000 USD
The Library has acquired the papers of Brian McFarlane, who was the first writer of the Hardy Boys series of books. To complement his papers, the Library would like to acquire first editions of all the books in this series penned by him. A gift of $50,000 US would allow us to purchase first editions of all the books missing from our collection. Individual titles can be purchased at a cost of $1500 to $4000 US. per title.
We would also like to purchase vols. 1-4 of The Dana Girls series by Brian McFarlane written under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene.

Backfile collections of journals: $ 20,000 +
To meet the growing needs of students for both group and individual study spaces, the Library would like to replace print issues with electronic backfiles whenever possible. This would allow us to create more spaces for students and would give 24/7 access to these journals through the Library's website. These backfiles are a one-time purchase that will greatly enhance McMaster's collection of electronic journals. A gift to purchase electronic backfiles of science and engineering journals, in particular, would have a tremendous impact on our ability to redesign Thode Library.
Book Funds $ 5,000-25,000
This gift will fund the purchase of books in any academic discipline. We particularly need books to support new programs offered by the University, for which there is currently little or no funding identified. Some of these programs are Communications, Health & Aging, Indigenous Studies.
For information on gifts designated for electronic journals or books, please contact Anne Pottier, Associate University Librarian, Collections and Facilities.
