Ford Hall 2015 Collection Drive

Welcome to the Ford Hall 2015 collection drive!

The University Archives at Brandeis University is soliciting donations of primary source materials which will help document the Ford Hall 2015 movement.

We collect all types of primary source materials at Brandeis, and eligible items could be documents, photographs or artifacts. Our goal is to thoroughly and appropriately document the Ford Hall 2015 movement and to do so primarily from the point of view of the students involved.

We are especially cognizant of student privacy and concerns regarding how these materials are handled in the Archives. In particular we are able to work with you to establish restrictions on their access and use. We are very happy to speak with you individually and to hear your feedback about this effort.

Please read our standard Deed of Gift and our Deed of Gift- Copyright Succession. One Deed must accompany all donations in order for us to acquire, preserve, and make these materials available.

How to donate materials

Physical and print materials and artifacts:

These items may be brought to the University Archives during advertised collection drives or by appointment. Please email for an appointment. You may also request a pick up.

Digital materials:

The most secure way to donate without compromising image quality is to create a box account using your Brandeis username and uploading your material there. You will then share the folder with and allow downloading. You may also directly email material to The best format for a document is PDF, for images JPEG or TIFF. If you are donating images, please be sure to send us as close to the original file as possible, as images downloaded from the web are often too small for collection purposes. We may ask you to help us identify items you send, but it is helpful if names and files contain clues such as subject and date.
