The Mazama Library and Historical Collections (LHC) accepts a wide range of documents, records, and material. To summarize our collection development policy, in descending order of priority*:
- Mazamas engaged in Mazama activities
- Mazamas engaged in non-Mazama activities
- Non-Mazamas engaged in non-Mazama activities
* exceptions to the rule are always considered, please contact the LHC Manager if you have any questions.
Although the Mazama LHC cannot accept everything that you offer (whether because of staff and space constraints or because the materials are not within the collection development policy outline above), it welcomes the opportunity to review materials; if it is not appropriate for the LHC, there may be another repository to which you may be referred. Some materials may be of more sentimental than historical value and should be kept by the individual or family.
