Does the Mudd Manuscript Library accept donations?
Return to Transfers and Donations Main Page
We are always happy to receive material relating to Princeton University's
past. The Archives would be much poorer if not for the generosity of alumni,
faculty, and staff and their respective families. We are especially interested
in anything that might shed light on student life, including diaries,
correspondence home, scrapbooks, examination questions, course syllabi
and notes, and photographs. If you should come across such items, we would
be delighted to make a home for them.
There are some items that we do not need: Nassau Heralds, Bric-a-Bracs,
and reunion books published before 1950, most mass-published books pertaining
to Princeton, and reunion clothing. Except for the last instance, we have
multiple copies of these publications. With regard to clothing, we do
not have the ability to store textiles properly. If you are at all uncertain
about whether or not to donate something, feel free to
call or email us.
You can send donations to the Mudd Manuscript Library. When you do so, please print, complete and enclose the University Archives donation form. After we receive the donation we will send a brief acknowledgment to assure you that the material arrived
safely. Then, in due course, you will receive a formal letter of acknowledgment
from the University Librarian. Please include your name, postal address,
and email address (if available) with your donation.
