Adams State Archives & Special Collections: How to Donate to the Collections

How to Donate to the Collections

Donation Information

Anybody can donate collections to Adams State Special Collections and Archives!  Items such as diaries, pictures, journals, and other mementos can add a great deal of value to our Valley collections.  There are two important steps to take if you are thinking of donating items such as these to the collections:

The first step to donating is to contact Mary Walsh at mwalsh@adams.edu or call at 719-587-7174. This step provides an introduction and an opportunity to discuss your wishes and needs for your materials.  If your donation does not fit into our current collection, another organization may be recommended that might better suit your materials. Should your donation fit within the scope of Nielsen Library's needs, you will be supplied with a donation form to submit with your materials.

On behalf of the Nielsen Library, thank you in advance for your interest in donating.
