Library Fund Development
ARL/OLMS Online Lyceum Course
August 9-20, 2004
$200 for ARL members
$250 for nonmembers

The Association of Research Libraries is pleased to offer the Online 
Lyceum course Library Fund Development. This course provides you with a 
basic understanding of library fund development and the individual's 
role in it by encouraging you to examine fundraising in the context of 
your own library organization. Through this course, we help you start 
finding answers to development questions such as: "How do you approach a 
donor?", "Are there any 'magic words' you can say to get what you 
want?", and "Who's who on campus and in the community?" The concepts 
introduced in this course come alive as you consider how they play 
out--or don't play out--in your everyday environment.

In this course you will interact with colleagues and the course 
facilitator through weekly, real-time chat sessions and via an 
asynchronous discussion board. In addition, you get facilitator feedback 
on their work in the course via the submission of assignments to their 
course journals. Please keep in mind that several of the activities and 
assignments involve interviewing your library director and/or a 
development professional.

Target Audience
Library leaders and others interested in learning more about what it 
takes to engage in successful fund-development activities should take 
Library Fund Development. This course is not intended for experienced 
library development officers.

Janice Simmons-Welburn, Associate Dean, University of Arizona Library 
and ARL/OLMS Adjunct Faculty
