Subject: Workshop on fund raising

Workshop on fund raising

From: Steve Smith <smith>
Date: Friday, February 16, 1996
Libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions must
expand their fund-raising efforts to new horizons as the current
political climate causes uncertainty about the future of federal
funding for cultural organizations, programs, and projects.

"Capitalize on Collections Care:  A Fund-Raising Workshop," to be
held March 29, 1996, in Austin, Texas, will show how organizations
can use their collections care programs to strengthen their
development efforts and to target new funding sources, including the
private sector and state and local governments.

A diverse group of sponsors is making the program possible.  The
National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property
developed the project, and is taking the workshop around the
country.  In the Southwest, the sponsors are AMIGOS Bibliographic
Council, Inc,; Preservation and Conservation Studies, Graduate
School of Library and Information Science, University of Texas at
Austin; the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center; and the Texas
Association of Museums.

The program presenters represent a diversity of backgrounds.  Bill
Huebsch, Executive Director of the Upper Midwest Conservation
Association in Minneapolis will "Make the Case for Collections Care"
in his opening comments.  Valerie Hotchkiss, Director of the
Bridwell Library at Southern Methodist University, will speak on her
library's fund-raising successes with "Old Books and New Funding:
Special Collections and Development Strategies."  Victoria Steele,
Head of the Department of Special Collections at the University of
Southern California, and coauthor of Becoming a Fundraiser: The
Principles and Practice of Library Development, will cover important
fund-raising tenets in her talk, "Steele's Fund-raising 101: The
Real Truth about Raising Funds."

Thomas F. Staley and four members of the Harry Ransom Humanities
Research Center's Development Initiative Team will describe an
exciting approach to a large development campaign.  Carlton Schwab,
Director of Development for the Graduate School of Library and
Information Science and Lyndon Baines Johnson School of Public
Affairs, University of Texas at Austin, ends the day with a
"Development Outlook."

The full-day workshop will demonstrate how institutions can
incorporate preservation and conservation creatively into
fund-raising activities, benefiting both the collections care
program and the whole institution. The session will be held from
9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 29 at the Joe C. Thompson
Conference Center, 26th and Red River Streets, at the University of
Texas at Austin.

The registration fee for the session is $85.00 for the first registrant
($75.00 for AMIGOS members), $65.00 for the second, and $50.00 from the
third registrant from a single institution.  For further information, or
