If it is a large donation or one that needs special consideration then please fill out this form. Then you will be contacted by email or phone.
We will be very accepting of materials that you will pack and ship, and we are more selective when we have to pay and coordinate, but we can do this and we have for many many collections. For full libraries, we will travel to your location to pack and ship.
We try to digitize materials and make them available publicly as funding allows– we make no guarantees as to if and when this might be. If the donation is large enough, then it gets recorded as a donation item on the archive.org website, with photos of the donor if desired. And as these larger collections are digitized they are made into a special collection on the Internet Archive to celebrate the donor and to help users of the Internet Archive find and enjoy the materials.
