Introduction

Abstract

Beginning with a review of existing scholarship on the topic, the authors propose a new approach. Their goal is to put the information and knowledge developed and published over the years into the hands of higher education fundraisers tasked with the role of fundraising for the academic library. They hope to educate library leadership and staff about development by showing them how fundraisers show donors the opportunities for giving in the library environment. Finally, this book is an effort to answer the question often heard in higher education development circles: “How in the world can you raise money for the library?”
