Raising the visibility of the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries

WWhen I first joined the board of the Friends of the University Libraries, I was surprised to find how few people outside the board knew that we even existed. That realization has driven me to make every possible effort to raise the visibility of this treasured organization.

The Friends of the University Libraries (FOL) is a diverse group of University faculty, staff, and community leaders who have an abiding love of books, of libraries, and a passion to learn.

Our job as Friends is to learn, to share, to bring people into the University Libraries, and to help the University Libraries raise funds for special projects that build, conserve, restore, and make collections available to ever-wider audiences. In this brief column, I would like to share some of the benefits of being a Friend, our goals, and the ways in which we have tried to meet those goals in the last year.

Constant Learning Each of us on the Board learns something new every time we come to the Libraries for a meeting or an event. We learn about the collections, their holdings, and their reach. This year, we held one of our Board meetings at the Owen H. Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine, which gave us an opportunity to see “Downton Abbey: Behind the Scenes of Health and Illness.” The exhibit – co-curated by Libraries staff member Lois Hendrickson and Emily Hagens, a Ph.D. student in the History of Medicine – was used by medical students, but also reached across disciplines to create more integrated ways of thinking and learning.

Growing MembershipA primary goal for FOL is to grow our membership. How better to raise awareness and share the riches of the Libraries than by creating more ambassadors for the Libraries through increasing Friends membership? There truly is something for everyone within the vast and varied collections of the Libraries. One example is the Charles Babbage Institute – home to archives and rare publications that document the history of information technology. Others include the Upper Midwest Jewish Archives and the Children’s Literature Research Collections. Each of these collections is part of the University of Minnesota Libraries. All are open to the public. As Friends of the Libraries, one way we can support the Libraries is to help get the word out about these great collections.

This year, with the leadership of Libraries staff, we have increased our efforts to bring in new members through intensified calling and letter writing, by bringing guests to events, by improving the publicity for FOL events, and in contacting former members of FOL to invite them back. In April we hosted a reunion of alumni from the former University of Minnesota Library School.

Our membership numbers have already grown substantially over the last year and will continue to grow.

Reaching OutThe Friends link the Libraries to the community through sponsored and co-sponsored events. This year we hosted a Robert Bly reading to a packed house. Carl Flink, choreographer and Nadine Jette-Sween Professor of Dance and Chair of the University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts and Dance, spoke at our Feast of Words dinner. Anatoly Liberman, Professor of German, Scandinavian and Dutch, with Maria Jette (a FOL Board member and soprano supreme) and Timothy Lovelace, associate professor of Collaborative Piano in the School of Music presented an afternoon invention centered on the writing and music of Oscar Wilde. And in May, Wendy Lehr, beloved actress, teacher and director, was the speaker at our Annual Celebration in Rarig Center.

Raising FundsSeveral years ago, the Friends board determined to focus its fundraising efforts on two very special collections: the Performing Arts Archives and the Upper Midwest Literary Archives, both overseen by curator Cecily Marcus. As part of this effort, we are seeking funds from grants, organizations, and individuals. The funds raised so far have been used in very critical and exciting projects:

  1. Processing Performing Arts/Literary papers and archives heretofore not widely accessible, such as: Graywolf Press co-founder Scott Walker, Dancer/philanthropist Sage Cowles, Costume designer Jack Edwards, Theatre de la Jeune Lune, and the Playwrights’ Center.
  2. Completing the digitization of more than 1,200 film and video objects from the Minnesota Orchestra, Guthrie Theater, James Sewell Ballet, Theatre de la Jeune Lune, Minnesota Dance Theater, Penumbra Theatre, Ballet Arts MN archives, and the Dance Pioneer Oral History Project. Digitization preserves these valuable but fragile archives so that they can be used more broadly.

Meanwhile, Cecily has acquired the following new archive collections since spring 2013, all of which will need to be processed and preserved.

  • Minnesota Opera
  • Children’s Theatre Company
  • Park Square Theater
  • John Munger

It has been a very busy and productive year. And thanks are due.

The Libraries are full of interesting, intelligent, invigorating people whose main goal in the world is to share their treasures and their knowledge with us. As the Friends Board President, I thank them all: Wendy Lougee, the extraordinary University Librarian, all of the librarians, curators, and archivists, and, most especially, the Libraries staff that “rightly directs” the FOL board: Kathy McGill, Development Director, Linda Greve, Assistant to the Associate University Librarian for Community Outreach, Lanaya Stangret, Events and FOL Coordinator, Heidi Miller, Development Associate, and Mark Engebretson, Communications Director.

To all Friends of the University Libraries, thank you! You are the foundation. We love seeing you at Library events and welcome your input. So bring your friends to make new Friends of the Libraries and help us make the University of Minnesota Libraries Better than Best!

Judy Hornbacher
President, Friends of the Libraries

A special thank you to those many donors listed here whose generosity brings vitality and strength to the Libraries and their collections. The donors listed here include, among others, members of the Friends of the University Libraries, the Kerlan Friends, and the Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections plus supporters of our other special archival collections: Charles Babbage Institute Archives, Givens Collection of African American Literature, Immigration History Research Center Archives, Upper Midwest Literary Archives, Northwest Architectural Archives, Performing Arts Archives, Social Welfare History Archives, the Tretter Collection, and University Archives. It includes general supporters of the Libraries, the Andersen Research Fellowship Program as well as the James Ford Bell, Music, Magrath, Wilson, and Wangensteen Libraries.

So much support from so many people – thank you. It is difficult to list our many individual supporters by gift designation, but we’re exploring some options! In the meantime, please know that your support is of great value to us, to each collection, and to the Libraries.

Wendy Pradt Lougee
University Librarian, McKnight Presidential Professor
