Donating Materials

The majority of the Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute holdings have been acquired through generous donations of collections and endowment funds supporting collections, access, and programming. Acquisition decisions are based on relevance to the collection development focuses, research value of the material, relationship to other materials, and costs of acquiring, preserving, housing, and making accessible the material. Gifts that require extraordinary resources are reviewed in accordance with OSU Libraries’ Gifts-in-Kind Review Policy.
