Retiring faculty and staff members can get answers to the question “What do I do with my books and papers?” during a free program on Sept. 6, from 4 to 6 p.m., in the Wilson Special Collections Library.

Librarians and archivists will discuss ways to preserve your intellectual legacy at UNC by donating books and papers to the Library, and options for placing scholarly materials elsewhere if the UNC Library is unable to accept them. Attendees will also learn about achieving charitable goals through gift planning.

Following the panel discussion and Q & A, a reception will take place in the North Carolina Collection Gallery of Wilson Library.

Topics will be:

  • Managing and placing your personal book collections – Libby Chenault, Davis Library
  • Preserving your scholarly work (papers, research materials, data) – Jay Gaidmore, University Archives
