Special Collections is delighted to receive new items which complement collection holdings. The Stock Car Racing Collection collects memorabilia and personal papers related to all forms of car racing. The University Archives and Records is actively seeking materials, such as scrapbooks and student organization documents, which illustrate student life at Appalachian State University. The W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection emphasizes the Appalachian Region with strengths in the social sciences, regional history, folklore, music, religion, genealogy, fiction, and African and Native Appalachia. Rare Books and Manuscripts collects in a variety of areas, such as British history and historical children's literature.

Monetary donations are also welcome and are used for purchasing new items. Donors may be able to claim a charitable donation tax deduction for gifts to the collection. For more information, please see Donations. If you would like to discuss a donation, please see our Staff Directory.
