Digital Bookplates: Potential Fundraiser for the Public Library Digital Bookplates: Potential Fundraiser for the Public Library Presentation Transcript

  • Digital Bookplates Potential Fundraiser for the Public Library Angela Pierpaoli Technology Support Librarian Buffalo and Erie County Public Library pierpaolia@buffalolib.org Presented July, 2014
  • What is a Digital Bookplate? “Unlike traditional bookplates, digital bookplates exist virtually and are linked to library catalog records” (Foster/Robinson).
  • Who currently has digital bookplate programs? A: Academic Libraries  Brown University  Davidson College  Harvard College Library  Princeton Theological Seminary Library  University of Florida Libraries  Western Libraries
  • Why Digital Bookplates?  Flexible fundraising platform for a digital world.  Less staff time than traditional print-based bookplate program.  “Green”  Bookplates can be associated with all types and formats of materials, not just books.  Donors can view their bookplate, or list of materials purchased with their donation, without having to come in to the Library to find a particular item.  Bookplates do not have to be physically added to rare or valuable materials.
  • To Consider Before Starting a Digital Bookplate Program  If the digital bookplate program will be handled separately or integrated into the Library’s current giving initiatives  Digital bookplate program web presence  The creation of virtual donor walls so that all bookplates can be viewed in one place  Bookplate designs (customized at higher levels)  Whether or not to use gift levels, and if so, determine amounts  How to add Catalog records  Electronic/print brochures for digital bookplate program and donation forms  Whether or not bookplates can be printed and possibly framed as a keepsake or gift for the donor
