United for Libraries has added a new fact sheet to their collection of resources for getting started with academic friends groups. “Making the Case for an Academic Friends of the Library Group” (PDF) is now freely available from the United for Libraries website. Make sure to check out the full group of resources available on the Academic Friends page as well.
United for Libraries, a division of ALA, is a national network of enthusiastic library supporters who believe in the importance of libraries as the social and intellectual centers of communities and campuses. No one has a stronger voice for libraries than those who use them, raise money for them, and govern them. By uniting these voices, library supporters everywhere will become a real force to be reckoned with at the local, state, and national levels.
