Faculty positions

Abstract

Faculty positions are as important to the academic library in higher education as they are to any other department or unit across campus. Not only are faculty positions an avenue for lifelong funding, but the position itself becomes more prestigious through the naming. It highlights the gift of the donor and also increases the value of the position to the faculty member holding the position and thus affects any future recruitment for that position. As it also signifies an important area of research, a faculty position is a good case to take to a donor or prospective donor who is interested in research on a particular topic or specialized area of study.
