Destiny of personal collections

This community portal looks sort of sparse -- I guess I will start it.  I am interested in discussing what to do with personal collections of documents and vestidos da moda photos in the long term.  I have just about decided to donate mine to the Missouri Historical Society or the MO history museum, but I have havetons of scans.  As I am writing, I am wondering about the Internet Archive.  I am quite concerned that my material remain freely available.  Susanchambless 18:18, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

This is an important question, Susan. I'm a little put-off by the anonymity of the Internet Archive, so I think I'll donate most of my stuff to the Pennsylvania Archives, since most of my forbears hailed from there. I'm planning to include the material I have that's from outside of PA, though, because as I discussed with them, it makes sense to keep the family collection together. I can't imagine there's a single "right" way to do this - but that makes sense to me. Martamima 16 December 2011
