Donations are important for the future of Institute’s Special Collections and Archives. We are pleased to accept donations of books, archival material or other resources from individuals or organisations.

Space and resources mean we have to be selective, however. We’re looking for material that:

  • Fits our subject areas and falls within the scope of Library’s Collection Policy
  • Has no restrictions on subsequent location or timescale for processing or disposal. Has no restrictions on how quickly it needs to be received and processed by us
  • Is in reasonable physical condition
  • Doesn’t duplicate content we already have.

If you have material that could enhance our Library and you’re considering donating it, we’d be delighted to discuss this with you. Please contact us at library@bishopsgate.org.ukor 020 7392 9270.
