    1. Your having said "Friends of the Library" makes me think that your set likely isn't actually ex-Library (reference or otherwise), but likely was privately owned and donated directly to the library or their friends, who then sold them to raise money for the library itself. This is a common pattern in libraries across America and explains how you've gotten such a pristine copy.

    1. In most universities, alumni relations is a function that is kept distinct from academics and has fund-raising as its primary focus. For alumni/lifelong learners to become an integral part of a university community, we need to better integrate them with all parts of the university.

      This is an immense challenge. Not an unsolvable one. There's a very tricky balance to be struck between encouraging in-kind donations without accidentally decreasing in-cash donations. (The sky is not the limit; there's some maximum amount of combined time and money that donors will donate. But in fairness, most donors are not at that level yet...)
