In this season of gratitude and reflection, we are thankful for staff, members, and volunteers who have gone above and beyond to advance ACRL’s Plan for Excellence and invest in the future of academic and research libraries. And, I am especially grateful for friends like you, supporters who understand how vital ACRL is to the higher education community. None of our accomplishments this year would have been possible without the continued generosity of our donors. I hope we can count on your gift to the Friends of ACRL before the end of the year.
• Give now to the ACRL Advancement Fund and support our open access publishing programs, including our flagship research journal College & Research Libraries, which addresses a wide array of scholarly communication issues, including data management, library publishing, open access, digital scholarship, and power and privilege in knowledge-creation systems.
• Give now and advance ACRL’s commitment to creating diverse and inclusive communities within the Association and in academic and research libraries.
• Give now and support Project Outcome for Academic Libraries, a free resource for the community to help libraries understand and share the impact of essential library programs and services. The online toolkit provides standardized surveys, a simple process for measuring and analyzing outcomes, and resources libraries can use to apply their results to effect change.
• Give now in honor of a colleague or mentor who has inspired you. Your gift of appreciation will delight a colleague and strengthen the impact of ACRL on the higher education community through scholarships, research grants, and advocacy efforts.
Your donation will do all this and more — so give before midnight on December 31.
But wait, there’s more! When you give $25 or more to ACRL through December 31, you’ll receive a free bonus gift! Choose free access to one of ACRL’s special e-book offerings as our way of saying thank you for your generous support.
Check out the gift options on our website and we’ll be in touch to help you select your favorite when you donate.
Support ACRL through your contribution and help us reach our goal of 82 donors as we close out 2021.
Your gift, of any size, makes a big difference. Thank you for your generosity!
