  • Textiles
  • Photographs
  • Ephemera
  • Objects
  • Artworks

If you would like to donate material, we would encourage you to check our Collection Policy to confirm that the material is in scope, and our collection holdings to check whether we already hold what you are offering. We have a list of books and a list of periodicals that we would particularly like to acquire.

Once you have checked these, we would love to know more about what you are offering. Please send us an email with as much of the following information as you can:

  • A detailed list of the material on offer, including the title of the item(s), who is donating it, its history and its current condition.
  • Photos of the material, which helps us to assess its condition.

We also appreciate financial donations when you donate material to help us cover the cost of preservation and storage.
