Book Donations to Resource Center History Library

The College Resource Center/History Library has a collection of more than 15,000 publications with our oldest dating back to 1552 and more than 450 serial titles with our oldest volume published in 1869.  Staff is hoping to fill in gaps and plug holes in our world class collection of Obstetric Gynecologic materials.  We also have an “Adopt-a-book” program to help repair publications in our collection.

Fellows as well as visiting scholars research the varied history of women’s health by delving into this rich and diverse collection.  Wear and tear over the years from routine use, mishandling and paper deterioration left many of these works in need of conservation and restoration work even before we obtained them for the collection.  Some need only minor repair; others need extensive help if they are to survive.

All donated books and journals will carry a bookplate publicly acknowledging you as the donor and you will receive a letter of appreciation in recognition of your donation.  All donations are tax deductible, however, the Resource Center/History Library does not assign a monetary value to donations.
