A portion of a major gift to the University of Arkansas School of Art was designated to enhance the Fine Arts Library (FAL). This presentation will address the parameters, procedures, and priorities that were established for the expenditure of this income in the first year and the challenges that the head of FAL faced. It also will touch on adjustments to be made in the second year. The session will include a discussion among attendees and the presenter about practical issues that arise in collection management, such as how to divide the resources appropriately to support expanding programs and weigh the immediate preferences of faculty members against broader objectives of evolving libraries. The session will also discuss the role of the librarian in building collections when the money comes from outside the library. Come to this session prepared to provide insights and join the conversation.
