Can I donate materials to the BHL for digitization?

No, the BHL is strictly a digital library and not able to  accept physical materials. Although headquartered at Smithsonian Libraries, BHL is made up of a consortium of institutions  that collaboratively digitize their respective collections. As such BHL is not the digital version of a single collection, but a series of collections virtually brought together into our digital repository.


Please consider donating your materials to one of our partner institutions or to your local library.
