Title: Introduction to Organizing the library's support: donors, volunteers, friends (Papers presented at the Allerton Park Institute November 11-14, 1979)

Abstract: On November 11-14, 1979, the University of Illinois Graduate School of Library Science sponsored the twenty-fifth annual Allerton Park Institute at Robert Allerton Park near Monticello, Illinois. This silver jubilee conference was devoted to the work of auxiliary groups which support libraries through donations of time, enthusiasm, political encouragement, money, and books.* The importance of the topic was evidenced by a capacity registration for the institute. No less gratifying was the wide geographic spread of the ninety-one participants; in all, thirty-two states were represented, with 70 percent of the registrants coming from more than 500 miles away. (Allerton Park Institutes are used to having Illinois as the home state of the largest number of registrants, but it was a pleasant surprise this year that Delaware came in second, Georgia third, and Oklahoma fourth. ) The number of small libraries represented, both academic and public, is all the more impressive, and evidences the depth of interest in the topic today. The reason for the interest is not obscure. Friends groups are springing up across the country in recognition of the classic adage about "friends in need."
