Book and Periodical Donations
We are always looking for interesting collections of quality reading matter in good condition. We accept curated collections of books and periodicals, including newsletters, in specific fields, as well as small donations of individual titles.
Academic: We currently accept quality scholarly studies focusing on the celestial arts and astrological fields, by researchers around the world, and researching any time period or culture.
Nonfiction: Books appropriate for the CAELi collection include studies of the history or philosophy of astrology from various cultures and any time period, books that focus on the practice and techniques of the celestial arts broadly interpreted, and contemporary books that present celestial commentary on the world around us.
Fiction: Certain works of fiction may be relevant to the collection on a case-by-case basis.
Archival: In limited cases, we will accept the donation of a notable astrologer’s personal research files for future research purposes. Space to host these types of materials is currently extremely competitive and limited.
Please contact email@example.com with the following information:
- What are the strong areas of the collection? (type of astrology covered, etc.)
- Did the person(s) building this collection have expertise?
- What is the ratio of hardcover to paperback books?
- What is the ratio of contemporary to older titles?
- What percentage is translated literature?
- What percentage are personal research archives?
It is helpful to provide three or four photos of the books and journals on your shelves. If the collection is a good fit, we’ll make arrangements to discuss your collection and talk about the next steps for donation. All donors will be asked to sign a donor agreement form.
