Archival materials are in a wide variety of formats and should be unique, one of a kind, and original. They are mostly papers, photographs, scrapbooks, and historic artifacts, but we also collect audio recordings, video recordings, digital files, microfilm, and more. Please see the collecting scope below to determine whether or not you may want to pursue donating your material to the Archives.
If you have an item that you aren't quite sure about, please feel free to contact the University Archivist & Special Collections Librarian to discuss it.
Final decisions on accepting materials will be at the discretion of the University Archivist & Special Collections Librarian.
Our Special Collections include rare books, artists books, zines, and more. Usually our main method of acquiring volumes for our Special Collections is via donations from faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Denison University. Please contact the University Archivist & Special Collections staff for more information about our acquisition process.
Currently, we are actively collecting in the following areas:
