Abstract: Seeking external funding may be a new experience for many librarians. Where do you start? What are the options? Who do you approach? This book offers the background and methods of fundraising needed by librarians and staff at nonprofits who lack professional training in seeking revenue beyond the organization’s established budget. Rossman writes from experience; he has gained expertise as an adult services librarian at the Shaker Heights (OH) Public Library as well as by coordinating sponsorship campaigns in broadcasting. The depth and range of strategies he presents attest to his familiarity with approaches to raising money for libraries and nonprofit organizations.
