The Archives & Special Collections at the College of Staten Island grows mostly through financial support from individuals. Donations to support operational activities have enabled us to purchase special equipment, like an overhead digital scanner. Funding for special projects help us to complete conservation projects like preserving a nineteenth century Staten Island atlas. If you would like to make financial contributions to fund special projects, collection development, equipment, and supplies, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The CSI Library is raising money to preserve an 18th century manuscript created by William Gamble (c. 1730-1794), who served as Commissary of Provisions for British troops on Staten Island near the end of the American Revolution. The manuscript pages are in pieces and cannot be handled. We need financial support from individuals to send the manuscript to a conservation lab. Conservators will put the pages back together so that researchers can consult the manuscript. A digital copy will also be created for remote use. For more information on William Gamble and his manuscript, see: https://library.csi.cuny.edu/archives/projects
