The University Library allocates funds to for acquisitions of library materials in natural history, which are used to purchase books and media, and to subscribe to print and online journals and electronic databases. University Library funding also supports acquisitions in closely related disciplines. The University Library also manages charitable donations supporting library acquisitions, including the John K. Bouseman Natural History Survey Library Endowment Fund.
Materials purchased with natural history funds are housed at the Funk ACES Library, along with materials purchased with funds supporting the related disciplines of biology, agricultural consumer and environmental sciences, and city planning and landscape architecture.
