Donating Material to the Saint Ignatius College Prep Archives
Before sending a donation to the Archives, potential donors should review the collection scope statement in the Collection Philosophy document. If a donation falls outside of the collection scope, it will not be accepted into the Archives. However, the archivist, Angela Perine, can be contacted (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss alternative options for your donation. Once the donator is certain that their donation is within the collection scope of the Archives, they should contact the archivist to get final approval and a copy of the Deed of Gift. The archivist will confirm that the proposed donation is within the collection scope and then arrange for the delivery of the archival material and the Deed of Gift via mail or in person. The Deed of gift should be reviewed before contacting the archivist, but not filled out until the final approval of the archivist is received.
