Giving Thanks

MIT has a great feature on their catalog, one that should be on many of ours, thanking the donor. Donations are an important part of many of our institutions' budgets. Encouraging more makes sense. Why not use the catalog to bring the importance of donated materials to folks attention? Why not give recognition in a public space to our supporters? This is the first time I've seen this. Maybe it is more common than I think.

To see an example go to MIT, search for Web of Science, In the set of icons under "More" at the far right, one is a gift box icon. Click on it to see the thank you message. A post by Ellen Finnie Duranceau to ERIL-L brought this to my attention.
