Duke libraries pencil in all-time high number of donations

“The Duke University Libraries Annual Fund has raised an all-time high this year, tapping into a larger donor pool. There were 1,887 donors to the annual fund in 2013 giving $744,890—an increase of 17 percent and 30 percent, respectively, from last year, according to the Duke University Libraries blog. Administrators attributed the campaign’s success to a number of factors, including smarter marketing and increased interest from parents and alumni. “There’s no single factor—it is kind of a multi-pronged thing,” said Deborah Jakubs, vice provost for library affairs and Rita DiGiallonardo Holloway University librarian.” (via The Chronicle)
