Donate to the Digital Library

The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University is assembling all TR related documents, photographs, film, audio clips, and other media in one online digital library that is available for public use. To date, the digital library contains more than 46,000 items. The Center, out of which the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library has been born, continuously seeks to add to its holdings. If you have original documents or other materials that may be suitable for the digital library, please contact pamela.pierce@dickinsonstate.edu.

Donate Objects

The Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library accepts donations of objects related to Theodore Roosevelt. If you are interested in donating an object, fill out the Potential Acquisition Form below, which will automatically be emailed to Presidential Library staff. 

Any item offered for donation will be reviewed by the collections committee. The committee will determine if the item helps to fulfill the mission of the organization and does not duplicate existing items in the collections. They will also evaluate whether the TRPL can adequately care for the item.
