are digital bookplates housed at the University of Maryland. Like traditional
bookplates, they tie your support to a particular book. Unlike a traditional
bookplate, you can access the bookplate from anywhere with an internet
connection. Once a gift or an endowment is fulfilled through the program, the
Library is able to add materials to our collection and the donor's bookplate is
linked in the online catalog to each new purchase made with the funds of the
gift. Digital bookplates are a lovely way to honor a donors' interests,
achievements, or memories of their colleagues, mentors, parents, grandparents,
graduates, advisors, and professors. They are easy to share with friends and
family and they provide a lasting remembrance of important milestones.
