Development, Gift Policies, How to Donate

***IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION: SCUA is deeply appreciative of material donations. We currently await further guidance from the university and state/local health officials regarding the safety of employees returning to campus in a regular capacity. We therefore ask that you inquire about physical donations of books, archives, media and other materials that are not time-sensitive at a later date. However, if you have an urgent or unique situation, please contact Patrick McCarthy, Interim Dean, at pmccarthy [at] sdsu [dot] edu***

Monetary donations support and sustain our ability to provide access to important research collections. Your gift will be used to purchase, process, catalog, and/or preserve unique items. We also accept books and materials that enhance our collecting strengths. See our Special Collections & University Archives Collection Development Policy for more information.
