Some visitors may be interested in contributing material resources to the Brizdle-Schoenberg Special Collections Center. We are currently soliciting donations for a History of Illustration teaching collection. We thank you in advance for your support of this endeavor. Download a printable PDF of our Donation Wishlist and Acceptance Guidelines. Our wishlist items include:
We are appreciative of donations and are selective about what materials are added to the Special Collections Center. Selection decisions are made by the special collections librarian in consultation with the library director, librarians, and/or faculty. Due to space limitations, costs of processing, etc. we are seeking a representative sample rather than a deep dive of items on our current wish list.
For inquiries about donating to Special Collections, please contact Janelle Rebel, Digital Curation and Special Collections Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-359-7583) with images and a list of items for consideration.
Special Collections will consider accepting materials according to the following criteria and conditions:
Upon acceptance, gifts are irrevocable and become the property of the Ringling College Library. Items that we are unable to add to the collection may be donated or otherwise disposed of. When gifts are accepted, an acknowledgment letter of receipt will be sent for the donor's tax purposes. Ringling College does not provide valuation of materials, and it is the donor's responsibility to provide a title list if they wish that information to be attached to the letter.
For inquiries about donating to the Alfred R. Goldstein Library, please read the Library’s Gift Policy or contact Dr. Kristina Keogh, Director of Library Services (email@example.com or 941-359-7582).
