The institution, the building, and the people of the Beinecke

Giving to the Beinecke Library

The rich and diverse Beinecke collections, and indeed the building that holds them, bring to fruition the thought and effort of generations of loyal alumni, scholars, and friends of the University. Donations of collections or single items that directly support or complement the Beinecke Collections should be brought to the attention of the appropriate curator. If you are uncertain which curator is most appropriate, contact the Public Services Department.

For gifts of support for Library projects and development priorities, please contact Basie Gitlin, Assistant Director of Library Development.
