External Fund Raising. SPEC Kit 48.
Association of Research Libraries, Washington, DC. Office of Management Studies.
Responses to a 1978 telephone survey of selected Association of Research Libraries (ARL) directors indicated a movement toward the use of endowed funds for collection development and toward external funding for special collections. Other needs for which libraries were seeking external monies included technological improvements, publications, expanded services, and buildings. This collection of documents on external fund raising in ARL libraries contains: (1) a concise summary of fund raising strategies, national foundation grant trends, and development and overall benefits of increased external support; (2) a portion of the Council on Library Resources (CLR) Fellowship report on outside support for book funds (prepared at Brown University); (3) general resource materials on The Foundation Center and The Grantsmanship Center, and suggestions for applicants for the 1978 National Historical Publications and Records Commission Records Grant Program; (4) program and job descriptions from Northwestern University and Duke University; (5) examples of fund raising presentations from University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Harvard University, Yale University, and Princeton University; and (6) two listings of selected foundations, i.e., those making grants to academic libraries in 1977, and those contributing to libraries since 1972.
