The Louisiana and Special Collections Department welcomes inquiries regarding the donation of materials to our archives.
Patrons interested in familiarizing themselves with the why, what, and how of donating your personal or organizational documents and
materials should visit the Society of American Archivists'
guide to "Donating Your
Personal or Family Papers to a Repository" and "Donating
Your Organizational Records to a Repository". Potential donors will be required to sign a "Deed of Gift" form, which is
necessary to ensure that the Louisiana and Special Collections Department is granted proper legal ownership and custody of the materials.
For more information on Deeds of Gift, visit the Society of American
Archivists' "Guide to Deeds of Gift".
