Rare Books Collection


The Department of Special Collections has been able to thrive because of the generosity of its many friends and patrons. Donations have included scholarly research materials -- focused collections or individual items of notable historical significance -- and funding that makes possible additional acquisitions, preservation activities, and interpretive programs.

We gratefully accept gifts of rare books and collections that fall within the scope of the department's various areas of concentration. If you would like to discuss a possible donation, email the department at spec@wumail.wustl.edu, or call us at (314) 934-5495.

For information about other giving opportunities, visit the website. You can make your gift online now or, for more information, please contact Daniel Miller, the University Libraries' Director of Development.
