Donate Collections


Digital Collections and Archives collects a variety of materials to document the university’s activities and in support of Tufts' teaching and research mission. DCA collects analog and digital formats. For general inquiries about donating to DCA, please contact us at

As of March 13th, DCA is not able to accept physical materials for donation or transfer due to the COVID-19 closure, as staff are currently working remotely away from the archives.

We are able to accept most digital transfers of University records as well as donations of digital content from students, faculty, staff, and other donors.

Please contact us at if you have questions about a potential transfer or donation. We’re happy to discuss the material and coordinate future arrangements for when we return to our physical workspaces.


    Student Life: DCA collects examples of student life, including documentation of student organizations and events; student publications; scrapbooks and memorabilia related to Tufts; and websites, blogs, and other social media detailing Tufts experiences.

    Personal Papers and Manuscript Collections: DCA collects personal papers and collections that fit our general collection policy, generally either by documenting the university’s history or in subject areas that support the university’s teaching and research mission.
