Thank you for your interest in the Jane Austen Collection at Goucher College. There are a variety of ways to contribute to the success of the collection from giving online right now to determining if you have materials appropriate for the collection that you would like to donate.
Goucher College’s Special Collections and Archives is always looking for ways to add to its Jane Austen Collection, whether it be rare editions of Austen’s manuscripts, critical research about Jane Austen or the Regency era, manuscript materials from the Jane Austen Society of North America, or other Austen-related materials. If you feel that you have materials that fit into these criteria please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possible donation.
Not all materials will be accepted. The Library needs to take it account space constraints, physical condition of the materials, and staffing resources. All whose collections are accepted will receive a Deed of Gift from Goucher College transferring legal ownership to the college.
