Foundation Discussion Forum

Library Foundation staff and board members from all types of libraries are invited to participate in the United for Libraries electronic discussion group focused on topics of interest to library Foundations. When you send an email to the electronic discussion group it is automatically sent to all subscribers, and their emails are sent to your email. In this way Foundations from around the country can share advice and their real world experiences. Messages are automatically archived for future searching.

  • The electronic discussion group is an information forum for those wishing to seek and share best practices.

  • All participants are to be treated with courtesy.
