  How are gifts in kind of personal papers valued? Frequently Asked Questions

← Back to Frequently Asked Questions Main Page 

As with any other gift in kind the donor should normally be responsible for getting an appraisal from an expert in the field particularly if they need a receipt.

Try your local rare books department in your university or city library as a starting point.

If the donor is well known, find out other institutions they may have donated to and ask them who the appraisers were.

They should be able to direct you to experts in the field.
