  • About the Author

Rubin, an independent library consultant specializing in extending traditional public library services, has created an invaluable guide for the public or academic librarian using resources already at hand or seeking humanities programming funds from the NEH or a state humanities council. This manual considers every aspect of the process, from idea-development and inter-agency collaboration to fundraising and evaluation. Also included are examples of successful programs from across the country and winning NEH proposals.

She has trained more than 10,000 librarians and paraprofessionals in more than 40 states. She is the recipient of numerous awards from the American Library Association, including the Shaw Award for Library Literature in 1980 for her first two books.
