Donating to the Archives

We collect materials in many media, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • photographs
  • letters
  • documents
  • manuscripts
  • audio and video recordings
  • phonograph records
  • pamphlets
  • posters
  • concert programs
  • publications

All donation offers will receive serious consideration. Because of space and other limitations, we are not always able to accept all donation offers. We sometimes try to find a new home for duplicates and items which do not fit our mandate. 

Donations of library materials are accepted with the understanding that the Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives becomes the sole owner, and reserves the ultimate right to determine retention, location, level of cataloguing, access, and other considerations related to their use or disposition.

We always appreciate if a potential donor can make a detailed list of the items they would like to offer.

Please complete the donation agreement form, if you wish to offer your materials to the Bohdan Medwidsky Ukrainian Folklore Archives. The archivist can assist you with this when you visit the archives.
