Donor Relations

Notes from Donor Relations session at ZL(u)C 2016, Boston

  • Concerns about zine donors who may be less than ethical
    • more diligence about researching donors
  • Concerns about keeping to the collection development policy
  • The importance of developing a collection development policy
  • It’s nice to send thank you letters acknowledging donation
  • It would be useful to have a collection of letter templates and examples as guides
    • possibly put these behind a form letter.
  • ACTION ITEM: Make list with info about collection policies of libraries.
  • Grab bags, specific asks (eg. Art Zines go to UT-Austin)
  • Collaborator’s bill of rights + student collaborator’s bill of rights
