- evidence of the need and appropriateness of the financial goal;
- the use of innovative, creative and well-organized development methods;
- the success of the effort in meeting or exceeding the goal within a reasonable expenditure of fund-raising monies;
- the involvement of library supporters, who might include boards of trustees and library friends groups or their equivalent.
The successful use of new and commendable library development methods is a more important factor than the amount of money raised. The involvement of boards of trustees and library friends groups in the project will be considered as adding greatly to the merit of the program, as will the inclusion of a public awareness effort which enhances the position of the institution.
