On Wednesday, Indiana Tech announced a major anonymous donation to its new law school, which will welcome its first class in August 2013.

The donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated a significant library collection that had been acquired from a law school that was unable to attain ABA accreditation.

According to Indiana Tech, the donor is an out-of-state business person who does not want recognition in exchange for the gift.

The collection has not yet been inventoried, but according to Indiana Tech Law School Dean Peter C. Alexander, it is sizable.

“There are so many books that they are currently being stored in eight tractor-trailers, and the microfiche collection has been stored in a large climate-controlled storage area,” Alexander said. “Everything is in very good condition.”

Phebe Poydras, the law school’s associate dean for library affairs, believes the donation is a major step for the law school. “This gift is wonderful, and it helps us get a significant start on building our library collection. We are very appreciative.”

Poydras already has the mircofiche and the books in the collection are expected to be delivered to Fort Wayne in June of 2013.
