Donate to the IOCS e-library collection

This is an appeal to our friends, supporters, and online followers of IOCS: we need your help in improving and updating our electronic library collection. To this end we are asking you to consider lending or renewing your support to the Institute by making a £5 monthly donation (roughly $5.88 or €5.70).

Why do we need your help? The Institute is teaching overwhelmingly by distance learning – particularly since the pandemic. Our students and researchers rely greatly on our burgeoning online collection. This demand increases every day, so we need to purchase a significant number of e-books or pay for access to e-journals – which would complement our existing physical library here in Cambridge (photo – bottom of page).

So, please help us in our mission to provide students, from all over the world, access to relevant and up-to-date library resources in electronic format. You too could benefit from our electronic collection one day!

If you can, do set up a £5 per month donation (or more, if you are able). If only one in ten of our friends were to donate, we could already reach a comprehensive and sustainable e-book collection this academic year!

You can set your monthly donation below:

Enter amount to donate, in GBP Chose the frequency with which you wish to donate

Tick this box if you would like to regularly donate this amount until further notice

or you can chose to donate for a fixed period of time instead; donate every month for months

All charges to credit/debit cards are made in British Pounds

Whether you make a donation online, by Standing Order or by cheque, if you are a UK taxpayer, you may be able to increase the value of any donation you make by 25%. This is because the Institute is able to reclaim basic rate tax on the gross amount donated. Please download the Gift Aid Declaration form here, fill it in and send it back to our address by post (‘Gift Aid’, IOCS, 31 Jesus Lane, Wesley House, Cambridge CB5 8BJ).
