Abstract

Fund‐raising has become a more important part of the job of academic library directors. Small college libraries with small staffs must devise methods to raise funds, which are not burdensome for any one staff member. Endowed book funds are described here as such a vehicle for fund‐raising. The case described, now 25 years in place, has raised an endowment of over $6 million.
