Special Library Funds
The Gertrude Fine Prints Endowment Fund was established in 2004, through the generosity of William J. Dane, the Library's Keeper of Prints, Posters and Works of Art on Paper. Established as an endowment (in honor of Dane's sister) for the maintenance and expansion of the Library’s renowned Fine Print Collection, the revenue generated by the Gertrude Fine Prints Endowment Fund will be used for the express purpose of acquiring original prints for the Library’s Special Collections.

The Robert Treat Endowment Fund was created in 2005 by Charles F. Cummings. Mr. Cummings was the Library's long-time expert on "everything Newark" and was recognized as the Newark City Historian. He was Assistant Director of Special Collections and Statewide Outreach until his death in 2005. The Robert Treat Endowment Fund ensures that the New Jersey Information Center collections are enhanced and preserved in perpetuity.
