Donating Materials

As you may know, with very minor exceptions materials in our collections have been donated by members of our communities. This has enabled us to create an archive with an incomparable range of material representing diverse lesbian lives and cultures. We are truly pleased you are considering donating material to the Archives, adding to the depth and breadth of its collections.

There are two ways you can support the Archives with the donation of material. You can donate material for placement in our regular collections (books, videos, CDs, DVDs, t-shirts, magazines, journals, graphics, etc.) or you can donate your personal or organizational papers and memorabilia and we will create a Special Collection for you.

Each of these requires some preparation, if possible, which will make our work much easier. In the case of your own personal collection, it will also help to insure that your life or organization is represented in the way you see it, rather than with a structure we impose. Please read "Donating Materials for Placement in Our Regular Collections" or "Creating and Donating Your Special Collection" for instructions.
