Library culture

Abstract

Every area on campus has its own culture. The academic library is no exception. It is a unique culture that, if understood and embraced, enhances the opportunity for raising funds. The library staff are a very close and highly communicative group, and professional relationships extend far beyond its walls. It will greatly enhance not only the likelihood of success in fundraising for the library but also your professional experience to connect with this unique culture and get the staff to help you communicate the mission and raise the image and the much-needed funds to support the work they do.
