Seal of the University of Virginia. Motto at bottom: "Non refert quam multos sed quam bonos libros legas. Non quam diu, sed quam bene vixeris refert.
The Ellen Gilliam Perry Book Fund was established in 1983 to be used for the purchase of books for the library, with a preference for works in the humanities, and literature. The fund is named for Ellen Perry (1925–2008), a former circulation librarian at Alderman Library.
