  • Question

    Who do I contact to donate materials?

    Answer

    NEHGS, like many institutions, prefers manuscript gifts to include the transfer of any rights a donor may possess in the original material. This is requested so that NEHGS may, at its discretion, exhibit or reformat/reproduce (for preservation and/or publication) all or part of a collection in the media of our choice.

    Per IRS regulations, monetary appraisals cannot be undertaken by any representative of NEHGS. All monetary appraisals will be done at the donor's expense.

    Donors of manuscript or manuscript materials are asked to provide information about the collection's creator(s) or compiler(s) to assist us with cataloging.

    Permanent deposits are discouraged because NEHGS must expend its limited resources towards maintaining and preserving fully donated manuscripts. In rare instances when such collections are accepted, they must be central to the acquisition policy and should have a defined limit at which time they become the property of NEHGS.
