Successful Fundraising: Case Studies of Academic Libraries.
Butler, Meredith A., Ed.
The primary purpose of this book it to assist library directors and those who want to become fundraisers for libraries to learn more about fundraising and find answers to their questions. The 12 case studies presented in this book address issues of building a major gift program; developing library capital campaigns; competing for National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grants and Kresge Foundation Challenge Grants; building library endowments; finding support for technology and innovation and library renovation; raising funds for a new library; attracting donors through special collections programs; and raising money for international library associations. The book also provides information on the reasons why college and university presidents like to raise money for their libraries. Finally, the book provides an extensive annotated bibliography of the last decades of literature on library fundraising. (AEF)
