Gifts of Materials

Our collections have been greatly enriched through generous gifts of materials and funds. The Libraries welcome materials that support, broaden, and advance teaching and research activities. The UMass Amherst Libraries are able to accept materials that have been approved in advance by a subject specialist, the Gifts Librarian (Jim Kelly,, 413-545-3981), or Head of Special Collections & University Archives (Rob Cox,, 413-545-6842).

For details about gifts in kind, please read the gift policy.
