Organizing the Library's Support: Donors, Volunteers, Friends. Allerton Park Institute Number 25.
Krummel, D. W., Ed.
Topics of interest to the library manager in locating potential library support, soliciting support, and managing "friends" and volunteers are covered in the 12 papers presented at the 1979 Allerton Park Institute of the University of Illinois. The papers begin with an assessment of the library context for private financial support, focusing on the history and present state of library friends. Additional topics covered include library friends and regional library networks; friends groups and academic libraries; publications issued by library friends; information on foundations; and leadership dynamics. A brief profile of each of the contributors to the institute is presented at the end of the proceedings. (SW)
