Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This book brings together a dozen contributors from a wide range of public, academic, and special libraries to discuss their successful approaches on the topic of library fund-raising. No matter the setting, any goal begins with identifying needs and potential sources, connecting and publicizing, and recognizing the support. The narrative makes clear that board roles are important, regardless of the type or size of the institution, and that clear internal and external communications (verbal, written, electronic) are a must for all campaign efforts. The contributors combine the thought process and vision aspects with practical brick-by-brick, step-by-step efforts for keeping the library before the target audience. Various chapters recognize the challenges of working within an institution's parameters on a campus or government entity; dealing with a traditional base in transition (e.g., a Friends group); or handling new social media. There are several other excellent titles available on the topic, but this one brings together an array of approaches that some libraries may not have considered.--Meyers, Arthur Copyright 2015 Booklist"
