Archives and Special Collections staff will review offers of unique or rare books, personal papers, photographs or collections that support the teaching mission of the university or document its history, for inclusion into their collection. Materials accepted for the Archives and Special Collections will be processed and made available for use through that department, as well as through Digital Collections platforms if possible. The Library does not otherwise accept gifts of books, journals, magazines, or other physical materials, and does not accept unsolicited or anonymous gifts of any kind. Butler Faculty wishing to donate their scholarly work should contact their liaison librarian to make appropriate considerations. Monetary gifts to support ongoing collection expenses are especially welcome and if you are considering making such a gift please contact University Advancement.
Please feel free to contact us should you need more information.
