The Joseph and Jeannine Jeffs Book Endowment Fund was established in 1990 by the Library Associates Board of Trustees, friends and colleagues of Joseph to honor his retirement after 30 years as University Librarian. As stated in the Library Associates Newsletter at the time, "His tenure marked the transition of the library from a pleasant, if hopelessly overcrowded and inaccessible, relic holding around 200,000 volumes to a basic university collection of over 1,250,000 volumes housed in a modern building which is a central feature of student life on the Georgetown campus." The fund supports the acquisition of rare books and manuscripts in the field of 20th-century English literature.
