Materials for the Collections
So many of the wonderful items in the Jacob Leisler Institute Collections were gifts from friends and supporters that it is hard to imagine the Institute without them. We are always interested in donations of records, books, maps, art, ephemera, as well as practical office and library related supplies.
For more information on the subject areas and times periods covered by the Institute Collections please see our Collection Development Policy Outline.
If you have materials to donate, or questions about donations, please contact the Institute.
Do you want to help with the transcription of a historical record? Do you love shelving books? These and other tasks, both more and less exciting, happen at the Leisler Institute almost every day. We would be delighted to have your help, and your skills, your knowledge, and efforts are needed. Please contact the Institute Director, Dr. David William Voorhees for more information.
