A guide that provides successful fundraising examples for all types of libraries. It includes practical information on what worked, what didn't and what could work better, and offers an insider's look at profitable development programs from a diverse mix of libraries. The contributors of these scenarios come from various backgrounds and levels of fundraising expertise. Library developers should find it easy to adapt these multiple perspectives to their own fundraising environment. This collection of first-hand fundraising experiences encompasses such methods as special events, capital campaigns and annual programmes. A bibliography offers further fundraising resources, and ALA author Victoria Steele discusses the role that special collections and other components can play in development projects.
