Donate - Library, Archives, Museums and Galleries

Can you help us continue to develop our world class collections, which sit at the very heart of our teaching, learning, research and public engagement programmes?

We are custodians of internationally recognised collections of manuscripts, early and rare printed books, archives, artefacts, objects and artworks from around the globe, as well as modern print and digital resources. Four of our collections are designated as being of international importance by Arts Council England.

Our collections and galleries, at Bill Bryson Library, the Oriental Museum, Palace Green Library and elsewhere on campus, provide spaces where our students staff and visitors can use and engage with our amazing collections, develop their knowledge and skills, and experience new stories and cultures.

Our staff bring their expertise and enthusiasm to ensure our collections are discoverable and accessible, through research services and collaborations, teaching and outreach programmes, exhibitions and displays, external loans, and, increasingly, through digital engagement.

These collections are used by university staff, academic and independent researchers from across the UK the world, students in higher education from Durham and other universities, school pupils and teachers, local residents and tourists.

We are always pleased to receive donations to support our work - you can help us build our unique collections across museums and special collections, support placements and internships; contribute to our widening participation and community outreach programme; and enable other development and innovation.
