Support Special Collections

The Special Collections gratefully accepts gifts in a variety of ways. Gifts to the Special Collections are tax-deductible. Your generosity benefits the entire UMBC community as well as visiting researchers and helps the Library execute its mission to fulfill the information needs of a research university with a distinctive undergraduate and graduate experience and to offer the highest quality resources and services for UMBC's growing and evolving teaching, learning, research, and service environment. You can help the collection reach its full potential by making a gift online, sending a check, and by donating materials (in-kind gifts). Thank you for your support!
