The Academic Library Advancement and Development Network is a professional network of library staff, university librarians, and deans who raise money for their libraries. Attendees from academic libraries across North America gather annually to share innovations, best practices, and organizational successes.
ALADN is an inclusive library fundraising community of peers. Formal membership is not required. Membership in this organization is open to professionals involved in development and advancement (e.g., development officers, special collections librarians, library administrators) for academic and research libraries in North America, and largely consists of participating in the listserv and attending the annual conference. The ALADN structure is semi-informal, with three standing committees. The 2023 ALADN Conference is hosted by Florida Gulf Coast University and Southwest Florida Library Network.
