What is ALADN?

Founded in 1995, the Academic Library Advancement and Development Network brings together academic library fund raising professionals, marketing professionals, librarians, associate university librarians, and deans who practice primarily in North America. We form professional and personal relationships and are active on our listserv as we work to raise money from individuals, corporations, and foundations. Attendees from academic libraries across the United States and Canada gather annually to share innovations, best practices, and organizational successes related to all areas of fundraising, including communication and marketing strategies.
