Janet C. Taylor Print Collection

This print collection is named in honor of Janet C. Taylor, an original member of the AGM staff and former AGM President, after whom the former library was named. While the physical library no longer exists, Janet's legacy and many valuable resources from that library carry on. Items from the print collection can be borrowed by AGM Members. To inquire about borrowing an item, please email Michael Underhill or Georganna Woods, or call us at 617-426-2606. The collection can also be accessed by both Members and Partners onsite at our Resource Center.

If you are seeking a print resource related to philanthropy and don't see it on our list, please let us know. We strive to build a collection that is useful for our Members and Partners and welcome recommendations.
