OSU Libraries welcomes your contributions to strengthen its collection and institutional research archives. Here are some options to consider.
- Donate books from your personal/professional library.
Gift books can be sent to the library directly via campus mail or campus freight (c/o Gifts, 121 The Valley Library). Items that are not added to the collection may be sold. The proceeds from all sales are added to the Friends of the Library gift fund, used to enhance the collection and services of OSU Libraries.
- Contribute items to the ScholarsArchive@OSU.
Throughout your career at OSU, you are encouraged to contribute electronic documents to the ScholarsArchive@OSU. This provides a means of permanently storing for your research and teaching output.
- Donate your personal papers and research to OSU Archives.
The OSU Archives Manuscripts Collection solicits collections from faculty, especially research files that complement official records created by OSU to document research.
- Contribute to the Library via the OSU Foundation.
Donations to the Library via the OSU Foundation are greatly appreciated.
If you are considering a donation and have questions, feel free to contact your subject librarian.
