James A. Gibson Library
With the rise of instances of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) globally and the increase of awareness in the media and the research community, we see ASD as a collection focus with great potential. Specifically, what we wish to collect are the day to day records of those who live with or work with ASD. These records can be letters, diaries, photographs, reports, e-mails, blogs, research data, drawings, film and the like. We want to preserve the history of autism in North America.
We have received some great early support:
"I approve wholeheartedly of what you are doing." - Tim Page
"I am honored that my materials are in your special collection." - Temple Grandin
For a more detailed look at our collection policy for ASD including the five main areas of focus, click here.
Please contact David Sharron - firstname.lastname@example.org or 905-688-5550 x3264 - for more information about donating resources to the Autism Collection.
