The Library provides a wealth of services and resources for the scholars of UPEI, as well as the broader community.
The Library welcomes donations in support of our efforts.
Generally, there are two kinds of donations: "in kind" which usually means books, and financial.
For our policy about "in kind" book donations, please see our Collections Donation policy. We are not at this time (as of September 2021) issuing tax receipts, so all in-kind donations will be considered "anonymous". Please contact Collections librarian Melissa Belvadi for more information or to make arrangements.
Support the Library - financial donations go through the University's central office: simply contact Development and Alumni Engagement (902-566-0415) and ask to donate to the Library. If you choose to donate using the online form, you can designate your gift and we've included an image below to highlight the two fields you need to update to ensure your gift goes to the Robertson Library. We appreciate your support.
Archival, Rare Book, and Special Collections Donations
Robertson Library acquires documentation (incl. paper records, photographs, artifacts, etc.) of UPEI and its forebears, St, Dunstan's University and Prince of Wales College, as well as books, maps, and other special collection items that are connected to Prince Edward Island and that complement the teaching and research needs and interests of the UPEI community, visiting scholars, and the general public.
Since its opening the Robertson Library has been the Library of Record for PEI and maintains the largest collection of PEI material in the world. Our recent efforts include the digitization of much of this material, a long-term project which will eventually provide a complete record of PEI for free online.
Please contact Simon Lloyd, University Archivist & Special Collections Librarian regarding any prospective donation.
