Levels of Association

 

The *NEW* Association of Friends and Fellows of the John Carter Brown Library brings together two important groups of Library supporters: the Library's friends (aka Associates) who are interested in advancing its ongoing acquisitions, conservation, and fellowship programs; and its former research fellows who wish to support the institution that invested in them at an earlier stage in their career. All members of the Association support the Library's mission to acquire and provide access (in digital and material form) to rare source materials relating to the early history of North and South America, and contribute to fellowships in all areas of scholarly endeavor based on our unique collection of books, maps and manuscripts.
