The Law Library Appeal
The Flinders Law Library was officially opened in February 1992.
To establish the collection, the University was assisted by a public appeal which raised almost $1,000,000. Administration of the appeal was undertaken by the Flinders University Foundation, and prospective donors were invited to pledge amounts to be given over a period of five years. Recognition for their gifts was offered to potential donors, including naming rights for the whole library, for a special collection or a particular room, a place on the Benefactors Board displayed in the library foyer, and named bookplates in a number of Law Library books.
Of the amount received, one third comprised gifts of books and two thirds were cash. The appeal closed at the end of 1996.
