The library is the heart of the services provided to researchers and scholars at ACOR. It houses a large collection of books and periodicals on the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the archaeological sites within its boundaries and a comprehensive collection of archaeological books on the Arab Middle East.
There are many ways to support our library. Two main funds serve the ACOR library. In addition, individuals may give books or other in-kind resources to the ACOR library.
Cash donations to the Library Support fund are directly channeled into the acquisition of new books and the renewal of journal subscriptions.
Anne C. Ogilvy Memorial Library Endowment
The Ogilvy Endowment is an investment that is professionally managed on ACOR’s behalf by a private company. ACOR is not able to draw on the principal of the endowment, but may draw on the interest earned. Income from the fund is to be used exclusively for the library operations.
The Anne C. Ogilvy Memorial library endowment ensures the purchase of new acquisitions and maintenance of the literary assets of the library. The Ogilvy Endowment was created by multiple donors.
