Yale University Library donated 157 volumes of Arabic books to University of Southern Mindanao (USM). On Apr. 20, 2009, the books were turned-over to Dr. Jesus Antonio G. Derije, President of USM, and the Director of the University Learning Resource Center. This undertaking is an offshoot arising from the study tour "Faith & Community for the Southern Philippines" conducted by the Institute for Training and Development or ITD and funded by the Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs, US State Department. During the study tour, Yale University hosted a day activity conducted by Mr. Simon Samoeil, Curator of the Near East Collection, Yale University Library. Through Mr. Samoeil, links were established between Yale University and USM.
