ARCHIVES Donation Policy

The Meharry Medical College Archives is grateful to the individuals and departments who have enriched our collections with monetary and material donations.

We proudly collect materials that document the history, mission, operation, and function of Meharry Medical College. We also strive to preserve and make available—to both the Meharry community and to the public--records and information pertaining to the history of Meharry Medical College, including medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, and the allied health professions.

Materials donated to Archives become the property of the library and can be used as our librarians deem fit. If the collection is accepted, a Transfer Agreement form will be mailed and returned with the collection. A letter of acknowledgement will be sent upon receipt of the donated materials.

It is the responsibility of the donor to arrange for the delivery of gifted items.

We are legally prohibited from appraising donations for tax purposes. Please consult the IRS Regulations, or consult with a tax professional.

For more information, contact Christyne Douglas or Barbara Grissom at 615-327-6470 or by email.
