The Digital Collections + Archives Unit maintains a liberal donation policy and accepts most gifts deemed relevant to the teachings of the College of Design. Gifts and donations may be accepted at the discretion of the Director/Curator. Their use may be subject to restrictions or requirements by the donors. Donations of materials to which the donor does not hold the rights will be accepted only if accurate documentation of their source, including rights holders, can be provided. Donors who require documentation for tax purposes must complete the DCA Donation Form. Responsibility for donation appraisals rests with the donor and may not be conducted by DCA staff. Upon discretion of the Director/Curator, accepted items may be culled or donated in turn to more appropriate institutions, UMN departments, or members of the community.


Donations are digitized on request. If you would like to make an appointment to view donated material or have any objects that may be appropriate for the collection, please contact Inga Theissen at (612) 624-4080 or
