This fund is to be used by the Joseph T.

In the acquisitions, the preference shall be given to books in print, but should other book formats evolve, some acquisitions also may be made in them. Acquisitions may include, but are not limited to, works in history, literature and poetry, the visual and performing arts, the sciences, philosophy and religion, politics and economics, local and regional studies. An appropriate bookplate shall be struck to mark the collection.
