Donations and giving

Donations and giving

Special Collections and Archives is a growing collection of rare, unique and notable materials. The department continually seeks donations of materials that fit within their collecting areas. Specifically, the department is actively seeking to expand the scope of their collections to include previously unarchived and silenced communities.

If you are interested in donating material to Special Collections, contact us at libsc@k-state.edu or (785) 532-7456. You may also contact a curator of a collection directly to discuss your materials.

For information regarding transfer of university records to the archives, contact Veronica Denison.
