James S. Copley Fund

Each calendar year a number of titles are purchased through the James S. Copley Fund. This is the list of titles purchased during the 2017-2018 Academic year.

Established in 1935 and increased thereafter, and by a bequest in 1975 by James S. Copley, class of 1935, of La Jolla, CA, for books for the library. This fund is used primarily to support the Library electronic database purchases.
