Law library gets $1 million

Pitt's School of Law has received $1 million from Yolanda G. Barco to endow support for the George J. Barco and Yolanda G. Barco Law Library.

"The endowment funds provided by this wonderful gift ensure that the Barco Law Library has one of the world's best collections of legal materials," said Dean David Herring. "The incredible generosity of Yolanda Barco will provide substantial benefits to the School of Law's students and faculty, and to all the legal professionals and community members who use our library."

The gift to the library is in addition to the $1 million gift that established the endowment in 1986. At that time, George J. Barco and his daughter Yolanda, graduates of Pitt's law school in 1934 and 1949 respectively, created the permanent endowment for the law library. It was the largest gift ever to be given to the School of Law.

The endowment provides funds to maintain excellence in law library services and to provide continuing learning resources for law practitioners.
