What criteria are used to determine what will be accepted as a donation?
The following general criteria are to be used to determine if a faculty member's papers will be accepted into the Archives and Special Collections (although each donation is considered on a case-by-case basis):
- Faculty member's academic reputation and output as a scholar
- Faculty member's involvement in departmental and/or university affairs
- Extent to which the faculty member's papers enhance the documentation of university history by complementing existing holdings or filling gaps
- Faculty member's involvement in organizations and institutions related to his/her academic discipline
