Membership in the University of Delaware Library Associates
The University of Delaware Library Associates, the “friends group” of the University of Delaware Library founded in 1958, has begun a membership drive and new members are actively solicited for membership. Annual contributions begin for Friends at $35.00 and begin for Students at $5.00. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The University of Delaware Library Associates work to expand and to enrich the research collections of the University of Delaware Library through contributions from members. The University of Delaware Library Associates also sponsor publications and activities that make the collections better known to the national scholarly communities and to members of the general public. Interested individuals are invited into membership in the University of Delaware Library Associates and an online version of the membership brochure can be found at http://www2.lib.udel.edu/udla. A printed membership brochure can be requested by calling the Office of the Director of Libraries at 302-831-2231.
2007 will be an exciting year for the University of Delaware Library Associates with Nathaniel Philbrick, award-winning author of The Mayflower speaking at the Annual Dinner on April 30, 2007, and Dr. McKay Jenkins, Cornelius Tilghman Professor of English at the University of Delaware, speaking on “God and Murder in the Arctic Barren Lands” at the Annual Faculty Lecture on June 12, 2007. In addition, an issue of the journal, Collections, will be published in the spring of 2007 and will include an article about the forthcoming colorful exhibition in the Morris Library entitled “The Animal Kingdom: Six Centuries of Zoological Illustration.”
Each year contributions of the University of Delaware Library Associates assist financially with the acquisition of rare library materials. Members also receive a semiannual Newsletter of the University of Delaware Library Associates, exhibition catalogs, and Collections.
