Special Collections & Archives has been the grateful recipient of countless gifts of rare books and manuscripts from generous alumni, faculty, and friends. Additionally, the University Archives relies on contributions from students, faculty, staff, administrators, and others to document the history of Wesleyan University.

If you are considering donating a substantial collection of books or manuscripts to the library, we would be grateful for any financial support you can provide toward the processing of the collection. Funding can help us make your donation available to researchers and students more quickly. Funds for cataloging, archival processing, housing, and conservation are always welcome and are tax deductible.

The Wesleyan University Archives is the steward for the history of the university. We want to be as inclusive and as diverse as possible with our holdings, and ensure that we are telling the stories and keeping the memories of as many Wesleyan constituencies as possible.
